On day two of our trip to Colorado, I was eager to jump out of bed and look outside, since it was dark when we arrived the night before. Let me assure you, the sights did not disappoint! I had always pictured in my mind that Brian's grandparents (Art and Jan) lived the lives of recluses in their mountaintop cabin. Boy, was I wrong! Those two are constantly blowing and going from one social event to the next. As soon as we were all dressed and ready for the day, Jan was ready to give us a tour of two surrounding towns - La Veta and Cuchara. Both were nestled amidst picturesque landscapes.
Just outside of Cuchara, we drove to the top of a mountain that boasted of a 12,000ft elevation. Though the air was unbelievably thin, the wildflowers were rather fond of the climate. They grew to enormous sizes in the mountaintop garden.
Just outside of La Veta, there was a very impressive golf course (behind me). Maybe one day I'll get to go back and play there. That is, when I learn how to play golf.
Lauren and Josh (Brian's sister and BIL) shopped in Cuchara. They accompanied us on the trip.
A perfect ending to a perfect day.
