Spring Fever

It has been such beautiful weather in Colorado these past few weeks (not including the blizzard that blew thru last Thursday) that Dan and I are thinking more about mountain biking, hiking, and running in shorts and a t-shirt (more me than Dan on that last one) than skiing.  However as you may know from previous posts we have ski passes that we still want to get good use of, so we went to Breckenridge today.  I didn't know this, and many of you may not care, but I learned a good piece of trivia from Dan.  Breckenridge has the highest ski lift in North America.  The Imperial lift goes up to 12,998 feet!  It was so stinkin' windy on the lift and at the top, but the snow was pretty good, so I tried to be tough.  If I would have known that we were that close I would have made sure to hike up a little bit so we could have hit the 13,000 feet mark!  Anyway, it was a pretty fun day and I have a wind burned face to prove it!

Five Guys

We love Five Guys Burgers and Fries!!!  They just recently opened one in Colorado Springs and we have eaten there a couple of times.  In fact we actually had our Valentine's Day dinner there with my parents after an afternoon of them helping us run the telephone wire up to Dan's new office.  Anyway, we went AGAIN last night and for some reason the french fries were better than they usually are...

The only complaint I have is that after you eat there, you smell like it all day long!  Seriously!
