Out for a Drive

This is a bonus post, just because it was too good not to share.  Because it is such a beautiful and gorgeous day, we just had to take advantage of it and go for a nice drive. We started off with lunch in Longmont (more on that later), and then took the back way into Lyons, coming out through Boulder Canyon and Boulder.  Spring is definitely in bloom, and everyone from hikers to fisherman to moose were out enjoying the day.  These are just some of the beautiful sights we have to offer, here in the North Denver/Boulder areas of Colorado.  We live right in the middle, between both Boulder and Denver.  We are only about 15-20 away from each of them.  So all these beautiful sights are just a hop, skip and a jump away.

The sights of Lyons.  Lyons is only about 45 minutes or so from where we live.  It is on the way up to Estes Park.

Beautiful, colorful trees on the CU Boulder Campus.  These trees are in bloom everywhere.  They are breathtaking.  I wish i knew what they were called.

These are just some of the many reasons why we live in and love Colorado.

  1. Awesome photos! So cool about the moose! I can’t wait to get out there and take the kids fishing. We usually fish along the Deckers corridor. I want to take the kids up to Rocky Mountain National Park this summer too. I had a great time working at the YMCA in Estes Park in 1998. I always say Colorado is the best state and best place to live! God bless!

      1. P.S. I will be 41 this summer and I have lived in Colorado for 33 of those years. 🙂 I’ve really enjoyed all the sun and it was awesome growing up in Littleton in the 80s! My wife and I are so thankful our kids were born here and we get to raise them here! Blessings!
