Little girl at grocery store exclaimed, “Your shoes are very bright! Even MY shoes aren’t that bright!”
Compliment, yes? I love my new bright shoes.
Also, reminder to self: The $$ you saved buying those Nikes on a whim was not worth the weeks of shin splint pain.

Saturday Hike & Brewery Opening

Saturday morning, the SO and I met one of our good friends at the trailhead in Chautauqua Park. The SO and I recently hiked the Royal Arch Trail, so we opted to hike up to Flatirons #1 and #2. It’s a 4.7-mile hike with a 2700-foot elevation gain, and we spent about two hours hiking and another hour exploring the views at the top.

You can quite see it in this picture, but the Denver skyline is off in the distance.

I could have sat up on these rocks for days.

Here is the SO taking in the sunshine.

Hey, we were up there! This is also the field in which we saw a black fox on our way up. At first, I thought it was a baby black bear, which was kinda like the time I mistook a deer for a donkey.

After our hike, we made our way to a brewery opening near our home, Odd13 Brewing.

The space is really beautiful. From what I’ve read, it was completely renovated by the owners, and they did a wonderful job. I wish I had gotten a picture of the distressed pine (I think?) tables.

I tried a 10oz of the Hawaiian Bartender, which was a saison with mango. It was delicious, perfect for the summertime. We took a growler of Eric the Red, a red IPA, home with us but haven’t had a chance to try it yet.

Then we had pizza at our favorite local pizza place, Apeizza, which concluded the the perfect Colorado day. All before 1pm.

Went to see Hanson at the Tavern in Denver tonight. I hadn’t seen them live since my freshman year in high school, and it was a complete trip.

Here I am politely asking Taylor for a picture.

Thanks to our backyard fire pit, I’ve eaten more s’mores this summer than ever before. Time to mix it up.
