Bow Bridge

Today my sweet roomie and I met up at Central Park to get a good walk in. (What’s a better way to spend Labor Day than by ignoring the “hurricane warnings” and walking around leisurely outside?) We came in the south side and walked up to Bow Bridge before turning around for the day.

Climbing Uncompahgre Peak

Hey, friends: I climbed a 14,000-ft mountain today! I need to start this story by saying that I got talked into this adventure after a long drive from Texas and three (…four?) glasses of wine the evening before.
