Big day today, skiing at the A-Basin, unbelievably - given that today is June 1st!
It was a 2 hour drive from Fort Collins and passed lots of names of places that I am reading about in 'Bury my heart at Wounded Knee'. Mixed feelings about all of that, knowing a bit more about how the Indians were treated during the late 19th Century. On the way we saw old mines, and references to rivers such as 'Big Thomson' and the Platte, all of which feature in the book.
... but definitely not something to ignore. We wound down the mountain and before I knew it we were at the turnoff towards Boulder. I drove up through the suburbs, and traffic, passed Buffalo Bills grave and into Boulder. First impressions were it was a nice, relaxing looking town. I followed the GPS to the restaurant which is on the middle of town. As the GPS takes me on this odd route, I see college kids playing beer pong on their front lawn. Not even a lot ...
... up with a system: a chapter of his life however long and one of mine. For the next 8 hours, excluding gas, food and bathroom breaks we talked about our lives with one another and it was one of the most beautiful experiences i hoped to have with my dad and blessed to have been fathered by him even with the occasional backseat driving statements made on the road.
With my mom traveling close behind in the Nissan, i felt truly blessed to be on this adventure ...
... kitty to pat along the way - always a good sign!
Not minding much, we took the opportunity to rest and catch up on the ill-fated blog.. yeah, this thing. It's becoming more of a chore, but we are persevering with it as much as possible. Something to look back on in 30 years to remind us that we actually did interesting things once (albeit, not in Boulder... :)
Up the next day and off we went toward Rocky Mountains National Park where some walkies awaited us!
... fishing (we did not catch anything).After that we went on a boat in the Lake (the boat was owned by some of Nigel's freinds - JB).
I rode on Dad's back getting towed by the boat (Dad was lying on a wakeboard with the foot bindings removed - JB).
After boating we had to wait for David to come back from his golf lessons before we packed up the camp and went home.
