A Weekend Adventure
Yesterday hubby and I went on an adventure; someone had told me that there were Moose at a lake in the mountains and I thought it was the perfect excuse to go see a new area.
I will say that I was disappointed-it was a long drive and we didn't see any wildlife, although some folks we chatted with told me that there were also about 350 head of Buffalo, as well as Elk and Moose near this lake. I think you must have to camp there in order to see the animals grazing at night.
I had packed a picnic lunch for us, so we found a spot to eat that overlooked the lake. I will say the area is beautiful but the campsites are very rustic, so I doubt I'll be camping there unless we have some sort of trailer.
If you look at the clouds, you will understand why hubby and I headed back after lunch. By the time we were on the highway coming home it was pouring; we had great timing-because on the drive back there was a weather warning issued for flash flooding in this area. Part of the area was impacted by the High Park Fire last year.
Today hubby and I are joining some good friends and going on a bike ride. Rita and I have identical bikes-when she first saw mine she liked it and ended up getting one that is identical. In the past, when we've gone on the ride with them, we clock about 15-20 miles round trip and I'm thinking we'll do the same today. We are starting early enough that heat shouldn't be too much of an issue. With this ride today, I should have ridden 40-45 miles this week. Two years ago, hubby and I rode 90 miles in June; if I continue at this current pace, I think I'll make that before we leave on our cruise. I guess I'll have to hit the gym on the ship just to stay in shape.
I hope you had a great 4th and enjoy the weekend. Get out and do something fun & crazy.
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter
