Well, we did it! We made it to Denver!
Between visiting the Statue of Liberty, camping in the Adirondacks, biking through Germany, backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, and moving across the country, it’s been an absolutely insane 6 weeks. We had a ton of fun and a couple of minor snafus, but all in all, everything went well.
That being said, it’s good to have a home and be sleeping in our own bed again. I’m also looking forward to having a chance to catch up on many weeks of blog posts.
We’ve been in our new apartment for 8 days now and thanks to the help of my mom – who was kind enough to take a week off work and come down to help – it’s pretty much complete. We spent the week unpacking boxes and buying shelves and assembling furniture, but the place looks awesome and we love it!
We’re spending this weekend in some much-needed relaxation, but we already have plans to get out for a hike and some local beer tasting next weekend. Pat got me an America the Beautiful pass for my birthday, so we’ll start taking advantage of it next Saturday as we venture just inside the eastern boundary of Rocky Mountain National Park for our inaugural Colorado hike.
And while I never tire of vacation planning, I’d also love to have some feedback from those of you who have spent time exploring this area. So if you have some hiking/camping/backpacking recommendations, or know of some good resources, please let me know in the comments below!
