Road rides, Horsetooth Mountain, and other fun adventures
August 19th, 2011
Wow- its amazing how time flies. Dondi and I have officially been in Colorado for about four weeks now. We know how to get around Fort Collins (by car and bike), where to shop for food and all sorts of other stuff, and what to do for fun. Well, we’re working hard on that last one. . . exploring the vast array of opportunities for fun here and its been a blast! Check out our pics below to see what we’ve been up to this week. . .
Sunday morning ride from Full Cycle Bike Shop- we left at 8am with a group of 6 and did a beautiful 30 mile road ride
Pedestrian and bike bridge over the Cache le Poudre River just Northwest of Fort Collins
Another incredible sunset from the dining room window
After looking at the notches on Horsetooth Mountain (in the back), we decided it was time to climb it
On our way up the mountain
Dondi's brother Bob and his colleague Aaron were in Denver for business so they came to visit and did the climb with us which was a lot of fun
Getting closer. . .

We made it to the top of Horsetooth Rock. The view of Fort Collins to the East and the mountains to the West was totally worth it every step uphill! =)

After lunch at Coopersmith's, we took a walk through Old Town Fort Collins and chatted with a "bicycle keg-delivery guy" from Equinox Brewing Company
And to top it all off, Dondi and I were invited to the Intel annual party (thanks Matt!) and had a lot of fun learning how to play Roullette and winning (Dondi) and losing (Erin) lots of fake money on the BlackJack Table
I hope you enjoyed the pictures. We are certainly getting acquainted here and having a lot of fun! Don’t be afraid to leave us a comment. . . =)
