Denver Trip-Part 1

Terence and I decided to take a week off and go spend some time with the family and outdoors in Denver. We were so lucky all week to have beautiful weather! 

Our first night we stayed in an awesome cabin in Estes Park, CO right outside Rocky Mountain National Park. 
The next day we spent driving the peak-to-peak highway and on down to Highlands Ranch to stay with my dad. 

Next day we went to Pikes Peak. It was beautiful!!!!! It is actually a 19 mile drive up from Colorado Springs to 14, 110 feet at the top of the mountain.  
Throughout the week we did some good ole tourist stuff...we toured the Denver Federal Mint, no freebies :-( and toured the famous Hammond Candy Factory, lots of freebies! 

We got to stay with my big sis for a few nights in Commerce City. Below a pic if her super cute dogs, Margie, a Great Pyrenees, and Jasmine, a Great Dane. 
We took my lil sis and dad to Casa Bonita for their birthdays and saw the cliff divers, crazy monkey, and all the sopaipillas you can eat! 

We headed up to Boulder to hike around Chatauqua Park along the Mesa trail and may have gone to a few breweries for some tastings. We loved the Redstone Meadery www.redstonemeadery.com and Avery Brewing www.averybrewing.com and you can by both the brews here in TX!
