Playing Boulder Tour Guide

Since we have been doing a lot of mountain biking lately, I thought it would be a good idea to take the boys hiking to mix things up!

We went up to Mt. Sanitas on an absolutely perfect day and they got a sense of what ''real'' hiking was all about.

It definitely wasn't a walk in the park, but they made it and loved seeing the variety of fun and outdoorsy things to do in Boulder.

I want to do a more detailed blog on the new bike park that just opened in Boulder, but here is a little glimpse of the newest playground we now have. Russell had to show everyone up and ride the XL line on Joe's new bike!

Since we are all racing the Winter Park XC MTB race on Saturday, we needed to get the blood moving in the legs and the bikes dialed. We headed up to Betasso a) because it's close b) because it's fun and c) because I thought Cole would like it!

The hike took a bit out of Cole's legs on Thursday so we hit up the freezing cold creek on our way back from Betasso. Holy crap is that thing flowing!

To wrap up a great couple of days, we made a great feast of grilled ribs, asparagus, homemade sweet potato fries and a quinoa/veggie/cashew stir fry! Mmmm :)
