A Trip for Two

We took a long weekend to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, before it’s August, and we’re back to the grind. Denver, Colorado is roughly 8 hours from our abode, so it was a perfectly doable trip that wouldn’t break the bank. After spending a night in the city, Matthew and I made the quick trek to Golden, where we stayed with his wonderfully gracious cousin and her hospitable husband. Left to our own devices during the day, we did what every agile couple does in Colorado: we hiked, drank, and cycled. It was perfect.

Here are a few snapshots of the flora and fauna from the region:
