This year, of course, we had to go camping with Greta. We went back to the Buena Vista area since it's a fairly short drive and we love the campsites. We left town as soon as I got home from work Friday. It was so nice to head west out of town! We were able to get our favorite spot at Brown's Creek.
On Saturday we took a 5 mile (round trip) hike to a waterfall.
|We met some horses along the way|
|Lots of mushrooms near the water|
On the way back, we took a different trail (which in hindsight wasn't the best idea. This trail was very rocky)
|A sight for sore |
By the time we got back to camp in the afternoon, there were a lot of people around. Thankfully the crowds died down around dusk and we had another quiet evening.
On Sunday, we broke camp and took our time getting home. We stopped for lunch in Bunea Vista at the Eddyline Brewery (great pizza and beer!)
Then we took the scenic route through Fairplay, South Park, and Alma before heading into Breckenridge.
And we conquered Hoosier Pass! 11,542 feet
We hadn't planned on stopping in Breck, but since we were there, we decided to take the (free) gondola to the top of the mountain.
|Can you find her?|
|Almost to the top!|
The awesome view
