September 2008

Kara and I wanted to capture our old blogs for this site.  I finally was able to get motivation and time to do it!  Check out the three web page tabs above… Kara’s Old Blog, Nicolas’ Old Blog, and Our Wedding Knot.

Kara and I passed our 2nd anniversary last week.  As a surprise, she made reservations for us at a nice bed and breakfast, right on Main street in Frisco, CO.  We left Friday morning so that we could take a slow, scenic route over Boreas Pass – which is the way we went to Breckenridge last year for our anniversary trip!  Check out the below picture, does it look familiar?  Click on the picture to see what it looked like last year at this time!

Here are some more pictures of our trip over Boreas Pass


In the early afternoon we then arrived in Frisco.  Friday evening we spent walking around and exploring downtown Frisco, relaxed in the hot tub, and had dinner at a cajun restaurant.

Saturday, we participated in the innagural “Bettle Fest”, a festival to raise funds for relief of those affected by the beetle kill.  At least I think that it was the festival was for!  Oh ya, I guess it was to raise awareness too…or something like that.  We listened to live music and at a turkey leg that was so large that it was almost too much for us!  We also explored the historic buildings which were preserved and put into their main park.  It was really quite nice.  The evening was spent playing games, drinking wine, and more hot tubbin’.

Sunday we spent time hiking and trying to do Geo caching.  We weren’t successful, but will hopefully try again.  On the way home that evening, we stopped in Georgetown for dinner and ice cream.  Instead of taking the boring (I-70) route back, we went over Guenella pass.  Unfortunately we left a little too late from Georgetown so did not catch the sunset over the mountains.





Uh….I don’t think this GPS is working.

We camped with several of our good friends in mid-August not to far out of Denver.  Ken and I (nicolas) left town mid-morning on that Friday in search of a grand camping spot….and we were met with success in such.  Or site was next to a creek, completely shaded, just below a hill, and close to plentiful amounts of dead wood.
