Having a wonderful time here with the family! My camera battery is flashing red, so I skipped most food pics and got the important ones instead.
John’s sister has a Wii, so we had a fun time trying out Guitar Hero! Here is John rocking out with his niece.
Here is a quartet – I am playing bass guitar. I see my future career here!
Makes me want to get a Wii!
On Sunday, we headed into the mountains to Georgetown to ride the Georgetown Railroad!
It started at 8500 feet and winds its way even further up the mountain. This was a special holiday train. Santa and Mrs. Claus were riding today and Christmas carols were playing.
Here is poppa and son:
Gorgeous views. The Rocky Mountains are really breathtaking. I wish it showed up as well on camera.
Looking back at our tracks:
It was super, super windy today.
After the train ride, we headed back a little bit to Idaho Springs. This is an old mining town and ultra quaint.
While here, we had to stop at BeauJo’s.
This is a green company. They switched over to solar and eco friendly cups, etc. BeauJo’s serves mountain style pizza.
You can customize any pizza any way you want, too. They do an interesting crust where it is thinner on the bottom, but the side is rolled up and thick. The tradition is to eat the middle and add honey to the crust as a dessert.
John and I split a pizza that had half BBQ sauce and half green chili sauce, to which I added pesto. Awesome!
This was the view across the highway from BeauJo’s:
A mostly frozen waterfall. Isn’t that cool? There was still water spilling down underneath the ice.
Sigh… so pretty.
We are traveling again on Monday. Long flight day. Trips like this make you realize the vastness of the US.
