Nebraska & Colorado

NEBRASKA

We arrived in Lincoln, Nebraska where Colleen's friend Alisha lives and had a fine time at a waterfront park and at the library. We found Alisha's house but no one answered the door so we napped in the car and after an hour Alisha came out, I guess she didn't hear the bell the 1st time :) Her house was full of teddy bears which was a treat for Yaya. Colleen made a yummy meal for us and we spent the night leaving the next morning for Colorado.

A VISIT W/ COUSIN RYAN IN BOULDER COLORADO

We drove all day with a sick Colleen in the car and arrived in Colorado in the evening and camped up in the hills West of Boulder. In the morning we drove down to Boulder to meet Colleen's cousin Ryan. We stopped at these falls on the way down. Ambiana loves waterfalls and asks to hike to one everyday!!

Ryan took us for a fun little hike up the FlatIrons. I wore Ambiana on my back in the sling and she slept all the way up and all the way down. No waterfalls :(




TONY'S HOUSE IN FAIRPLAY COLORADO

After we said good bye to Ryan we drove back up into the mountains to Fairplay where my brother Tony has a house and visited with him for 2 days.

We met his neighbors, Courtney and Seth who cooked us a yummy Tofu meal!

We ate yummy meals and Yaya loved all 3 of Tony's dogs. We went for a little hike to a pond and watched the Sox lose to the Yankees :(


OUR BRIEF WINTER

It snowed up high the day we left Tony's and as we cruised over Hoosier Pass (11,500ft) we stopped to play in the snow as this is likely the only snow we see all year (unless we climb Mauna Kea in Hawai'i)

Yaya inherited her mother's love of eating snow :)

HANGING LAKE

We stopped at Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon and hiked 1.2 miles up to it.

Ambiana was thrilled as there was a waterfall at the end of the trail where we stopped for a picnic lunch!
