Hi all,

It’s been quite a while since I posted, but it’s just been too busy. But this little side-trip to Denver and Steamboat (along with getting my greencard), did me wonders.

Thanks to Sarah for inviting me and organizing our lodging and dinners, etc while there, Emily L for driving and letting me stay with her in Denver, and the Wolfpack on the Snow, Muff and Jenifer for a fun weekend! I’ll talk about four main restaurants in a separate post.

Here are a few pictures from my hours in Denver. Interesting modern art around the city with the Mountains as the back-drop. Nice!!

Steamboat skiing was awesome. Was a bit rusty after 10 years of not skiing and am still paying for it with a swollen ankle, but it was well worth it.

Evening festivities in town – ski jumping and mountain-biking!

Our view from the girls’ apartment. Sweet.


On the last day, Steamboat had a whole parade and games. Great fun.

My first real good photobomb!


On the drive back to Denver, had some difficult weather and eventually traffic. But it gave me time to take some cool pics.
