Rocky Mountain High

Went home for a long Memorial day weekend. Friday night troy and I went to dinner with an old friend (Kevin) at Outback Steakhouse in Denver after landing. Then we drove up to Johnstown where our friends Kendra and Derek live. They were nice enough to let us stay with them during this trip.
Saturday we got to pick up our dogs from Cheyenne, WY. They are living with some friends while we do our travels. Sandy is the oldest and he is a Jack Russel Terrier. And Belle is our youngest, she is a golden retriever. We picked up some UOP roadies while we were in Cheyenne also (Brent and Mark). And headed to the Poudre Valley. We went on a nice an easy hike through Young's gulch. Didn't want to do anything to strenuous since we haven't lived in the mountains for a few months, and the dogs haven't been up in a while either. After a long hike we drove to Fort Collins and went to the New Belgium Brewery. That night after the dogs went to bed. We headed to old town fort Collins. Started at the Drunken Monkey and the head to the Trailhead for the best cheesy fries in the world! After that we thought we would go get our dance on so we headed to the Zydeco's club. Ran into some old nursing friends and danced.
Sunday Troy/Derek/Mark/Brent took the dogs up to Horsetooth hills and went for another nice hike. Sunday night we did some grillin and chillin.
Monday was Memorial day so we went down to Denver to watch a Rockies and Cardinals baseball game. Rockies Won---Go Home Team!!! We met up with Mandy/Ashley and some other folks.
Tuesday we fly back home. Said goodbye to all. Can't wait for next visit!
