Tricks at Morey

A few of the Street Tumblers were over at Morey in Denver today so I stopped by for a few minutes and took photos. Sloan's pedal grinds are getting pretty good.

A few more are over here.

Back on the bike

After two days of snowboarding my legs are a little stiff. No better way to handle that than to go spin out a ride on the bike. It is 55F after all. My little 7.5 mile ride took me about 30 minutes.

Night in Vail

Saturday night Shaun and I went and walked around for a bit in Vail Village and took some photos.

Shaun in Vail

Stacy bought Shaun a trip to Colorado to go snowboarding for Christmas. Fun times for sure. We hit Vail two days in a row with Jeff and Mel.

More shots here.

Lunch Hike at Chautauqua

Koura is here at work today so I took her for a little hike during lunch at Chautauqua. Here is the GPS track of the hike, but only on the way back because I forgot to turn this on when I started the hike.

Awesome tortilla soup recipe

Yesterday is the second time in a month I am made this recipe. Oh so good, I have to share. I used potatoes instead of chicken and threw some sour cream and cheese on it afterwards.

Why I love Colorado

Just got home from lunch with Beth in Loveland and sat in the backyard in the sun with Koura. Note, this is one day after staying home from work due to the snow and it was about -10F last night, but it is beautiful now.

San Francisco - Day 4

Yesterday Lexey and I went hiking with Bosch, Matty, and Kristin at Mount Tamalpais. Really beautiful foggy weather and mossy ground. We did the Steep Ravine trail. Stunning scenery.

More photos here.

San Francisco - Day 3 (New Year's Day)

A good, though slightly lazier day. After getting a massage in the morning, we went to Alamo Square to take the famous row house photo of San Francisco then got an awesome Mediterranean lunch at Apollo Market & Deli and a great sushi dinner at Okoze Sushi. I had a little fun with my camera on the way back to the hotel and took some long exposure shots of the cable cars.

A few more shots here.

San Francisco - Day 2

Great New Year's Eve this year in San Francisco. Lexey and I went out and did a lot of walking and found some great stuff. My favorite was breakfast at the Waterfront Bakery. Also hit Fisherman's Wharf, Exploratorium, In-N-Out Burger, then an excellent dinner at Albona in North Beach.

More photos here.

More photos from the day are here.
