December 20, 2010 by Heather

Today we got up, had breakfast with George and Judy (eggs & cinnamon rolls, yum), went for a run(Andrew)/walk(me… this altitude is taking its toll, it felt like my head was about to explode after I tried to run for a bit), picked up our friend Cliff, and went to Colorado Springs with a couple other friends to see the Garden of the Gods.  It was truly beautiful.  Wow.  It is an area of all these red rock formations that stick straight up into the air and lean a little bit, which makes them look like they are about to fall over and break to pieces.  We really enjoyed walking around the park and talking and laughing with friends.  They talked some about their moving-to-Colorado experiences.  It was just a great day overall.  We ended the visit with yet another meal of pizza.  Haha… what is it with this trip and pizza??  Right now as I type this, George & Judy’s dog, Kirby, is curled up right next to me in bed.  I might try to sneak him back to Arkansas with us.  He would be a good, calming, masculine influence on little sassy Mayfield.  Juuuuust kidding.  He is pretty darn sweet though.  Aside from the occasional anal gland leakage… but hey, it happens.

Enough about anal glands, onto some lovely photos of our day.

There's a guy on top of that huge rock.

Strikin a pose.

(Look at how weird and bendy my leg looks here.. creepy.  Also, I looked mildly out of place in my all black ensemble and pea coat.)

He walks a lonely road. Ha.

Holding up the Balancing Rock

Friends 🙂

On tap for tomorrow:  A 4-mile hike up Rabbit Mountain with George, Judy, and Kirbalicious (weather permitting… which, I’ve learned, is a phrase here in Colorado that follows pretty much any plan for outdoor activity).  Also, Andrew and I want to drive up to Estes Park, which is a tourist town that you go through right before getting into Rocky Mountain National Park.  Weather permitting, of course.

    It’s funny that you said that about your bendy legs because I was thinking the same thing. Haha. Wish I was there, dang it.
