Ski Trip to Denver, CO


All night driving is the best though, don't you all think?  You can see the tiny DVD screen clearly, count the stars (better than counting the rows of wheat or corn on the stretch through Kansas), and have zero worries about other traffic on the road.  And with my experience, any late night conversations are the best.  I can't quite figure it out.  Maybe the delirious thoughts are entertaining to all parties, haha.

The first night we got fancied up and went to the Science Lounge, I posted about earlier. 

And the second day in Denver we set out toward the mountains.  We traveled a little over an hour to Copper Mountain, where we skiied the first day.  On the second day of skiing we went to Loveland, a smaller resort, which turned out to be my favorite of the two.

If it wasn't SO uncool to stay on the ski lift, I would have continued to take pictures for most of the day.  The views were beautiful and the lift seemed to be the only time I really took in the sights.  I guess the rest of the time I had to focus on getting myself down the mountain!

And afterward, a victory drink had by all.

I'm ready to go back, already. 
What a fun trip!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun - love the pics of the mountains :)


  2. Looks and sounds like you guys had a lot of fun! I didn't even know you were going on a trip!

    I've never been skiing before, I've heard I'm missing out. How was it the first time you went?

  3. How fun! Love the picture where you can see the skis on the roof.
