But it is a good tired...

It has been a while since we have been able to get out of the city and head up into the mountains.  With Mike in school and me working non-stop, we just haven't had the time.  However, this weekend, we decided we would let nothing stop us from heading on up and getting away from it all.  We had a wonderful time!  

Topos and Sedona joined us today for a hike through one of Jefferson County's open space areas out near Conifer (Pine Valley).  I have to admit, I think this one is one of the most beautiful and challenging of all of the open spaces; even though this one has really been destroyed by fire...We also could not resist the temptation to do just a little geocaching while we were here.  I downloaded a wonderful application for my iPhone that allows us to use the phone as a GPS.  It is quite handy!!

I shot the following video when we reached one of the caches farthest from the truck.  The area was completely destroyed by fire several years ago and what you see is what remains.  Yet another reason to quit smoking:

I have photos to share but that is going to have to wait until I have some time to download and look at what I have.  I have to get up early, pack, and head to Cheyenne, Wyoming for a week full of work...

Send me to my room...PLEASE!

I'm sitting here this morning checking out some YouTube videos and I came across a video posted by one of my team members' son.  I sure wish I would have had this option when I was 14 (and my brother's Commodore 64 does NOT count!):

Listen to what this kid knows about his PC.  I believe I was playing with my barbies and hot wheels cars at that age!  Of course, I'm sure our parents said the same thing at my age about us :o)

In the rearview mirror

Over the past two weeks, I have been driving all over the place with work.  I haven't really had the time to enjoy my surroundings.  While driving home from Cheyenne last week, I noticed that I had a great mountain view in my rear view mirror.   

It's always good to look behind you and see where you have been.  That way, in case you get lost down the road, you can find your way back to where you were before you got lost!
