Today was another great day in Paradise (aka Colorado.)
Remember the other day when I tried to ride my bike and hit a detour, today was sort of similar. Today was going to be a kayak day with my friend. We headed to Horsetooth Reservoir and during the 10 minute drive from my house to the boat ramp we were amazed at how low the water level was from 2 weeks before. After we headed down the ramp we noticed how windy it was! Like… really windy and a leisurely kayak ride would have turned into a struggle against nature. Well, I am not going to fight with Ma Nature so we went to Plan B.
Plan B was a drive to Estes Park and a walk around Lake Estes. What a great walk that turned out to be – the temperature was in the mid 70’s, blue skies, mountain views and elk resting on the golf course. The wind was refreshing and the walk was energizing. What a delightful treat to be able to hop in the car and drive 40 miles and end up in Estes Park, CO. Pretty darn amazing.
