The plan is to spend the first day and part of the second day in Boulder. We have been to Boulder before, but only for an afternoon. There is still more we would like to do there.
The next three days we will be staying in Estes Park and making our way through Rocky Mountain National Park. I still have a lot of research to do to pick the best hikes and little towns to stop at, but I am looking forward to that!
One thing we are definitely going to do is travel on Trail Ridge Road. This scenic road is rated one of the top most beautiful drives in the country! Count me in!
Guess who we get to meet when we are in Colorado? SUSAN!!! Susan doesn't blog, but she comments on my blog every day so I feel like she does have a blog! I'm excited to meet Susan and her husband.
This trip is going to severely interfere with my marathon training. For instance, the day we arrive in Boulder I am supposed to run 6 miles at marathon pace (7:49). The last time I ran in Boulder, which is at 5,430 feet elevation, I averaged an 11 minute mile and had to walk a lot!
Ahhh... I remember that run!
Needless to say, I will have to switch some days around during the days we are on vacation!
Have you been to Colorado?
