Cordie’s conference went all day and into the evening so we snuck in a few hikes in between his sessions and enjoyed some very nice coffee.

A highlight was seeing these elk along the road…

Our first night in Boulder we had dinner with one of Cordie’s work colleagues at this amazing Tea House… the food was soo good.

Going from winter back to fall was kind of cool and we were thankful to be able to experience Autumn and see the leaves changing for a few days.

Running errands and being able to see the mountains was quite spectacular

…become our new favorite ‘work’ break while we were here… The day after it snowed heavily we took about an hour and a half to hike up a mile to a nearby trail called the ‘Broome Hut’2014-10-28 11.01.50

Thankfully the trail was pretty ‘moderate’ so we could still climb in our ‘city’ boots.

The climb down we took our time and played in the snow…

As you can see there was a lot more snow than it looks like from pictures…

Cordie was really hoping for snow fall on the actual day of our Anniversary… and was thrilled when we ended up being ‘snowed’ in all day as 5-6 inches fell and the roads stayed covered up until time for us to grab a nice dinner.

As you can see it was absolutely stunning even covered in snow…

It was nice being “stuck” indoors all day. :)

We both enjoyed yummy steaks… brussel sprouts… and some amazing cheesecake for dessert.

It was a quiet day but absolutely perfect.
