... are very very glad we did it....thanks Sarah and Josh for the recommendation!!
Once we came back down, we were in Aspen and it was 1pm so we decided to have a late lunch. Whilst driving around to find parking, Darren glimpsed down a street and saw a bear!! I guess it's not too uncommon to have bears around but by the time we could turn around safely, it was long gone.
... in Gypsum (another 20 mins further west). It would appear that despite being called OCTOBER fest, everywhere locally had already celebrated it in SEPTEMBER....it's not just me that finds this strange, right?!?!
Anyway, Gypsum was the only place that had theirs in October so we went to see what it was all about....again a little quiet compared to what we expected but still a fun few hours. We had Bratwursts, Darren had a special brewed beer from near by 'Bonfire ...
... enjoy the offer...we picked a restaurant up in Beaver Creek called Golden Eagle Inn which you could pick 2 courses for that price. I had Chicken confit with apple butter and Darren had Elk Meatloaf, then we had a Palisade peach pavlova and Profiteroles to share. It was so delicious....they also gave us homemade sourdough bread with a butter that had been mixed with paprika and other herbs!! What a treat!
... so not always to the professional level expected but here we go. I am doing another set on old BW roll so we will see what is coming from this. I will try in the next few days to answer to them properly if I found the time, promise.
Well please keep your comments rolling on, it is great and I hope that the travel pod will inspire you all to get on the road.
Big kisses from me and Pickles
Aspen reminded me a bit of Banff, cute little ski/snowboard town with lots of hikes in the summer.
Unfortunately, I did not realize how high up Aspen is (2400m above sea level) and once we started our hike at Maroon Bells, I felt quite dizzy and tired. Turns out I must have had some sort of altitude sickness at 3000m above sea level... That happened on our hike in Santa Fe as well.. well, now I know :)
I recovered quickly and finished the hike at least...
