Girls Re-united

The older you get the more you realize how blessed you are by deep friendships. Though jobs tend to move people more frequently, I couldn’t be more thankful for the moments we do have, together. My friend J, K and I have been great friends since 2007. We all share the same adventurous spirit as well as love for meaningful conversation. K is up in Alaska now, but came down for a visit! What a delightful time. Join us on our Adventure.

We took the San Juan Skyway which goes from Durango to Silverton to Ouray and ends in Telluride.

Thankful to live minutes away from two good sized lakes. It is not too hard to take a few extra minutes to pack a special lunch and go eat it out there. It had been sunny and warm all morning and as soon as we set up, so did the clouds and wind.

Animas Mountain Trail

When spring arrives, the desire to get out hiking re-imerges as well. However, where we live hiking is limited, this time of year.  The snow levels are still too high, you cannot get into the high country until end of June early July.

Animas Mountain is a nice 5.8mile loop trail on the edge of town. Sayoko, one of the foreign exchange students was wanting to hike with us before she left. We were in the middle of a weeklong monsoon, however it was still gorgeous. Hope you enjoy!

Girlfriend Dates

As spring has fully sprung, I’ve come out of hibernation-which is where I prefer to be.

My sweet friend Jana takes her kayak out after work,throughout the week. I asked if I could tag along this time and catch up!

What a perfect evening. As I had been the one home that day after my night shift, I packed the dinner picnic. We set up our diy build your own taco salad bar. Also Jana brought some fun non-alchoholic drinks. It was gingerale, frozen raspberries and raspberry juice (super delicious). Also because she is awesome, she bought really fun cups!

We spent dinner time eating and talking, oh what fun! We could talk, forever. But now it was time to kayak the perimiter of the lake. It was a perfect evening, a slight breeze, the sun starting to set. Couldn’t have asked for a better gal pal afternoon.

We finished the perimeter and beached the kayaks for a little longer to talk. Before we knew it, it was time to part ways and return home to our husbands.
