Roxie Mountain High: The Remains of The Days
The remainder of the time in Colorado was spent taking it really easy. We would get up, get some coffee and sit on the porch. We'd go sight see a bit and come home and sit on the porch. Bick would take a nap and I'd sit on the porch and read or perhaps wander down and sit by the stream. We'd walk into town and then come home and sit on the porch and watch the world go by. It was very cool, both literally and figuratively.
On the last morning, I got up extra early and walked from our cottage to The Garden of the Gods. Hiking through the park in the early hours of the morning, feeling like I had the place to myself. It was an awesome experience. I walked/hiked through the park for nearly three hours. I want to go back to Colorado for that experience alone.
In summary, this was the most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. I am very grateful for the opportunity.
