Late Summer Adventures and Moving our Tiny House Soleil
Hiya! It sure has been busy on our end with loads of adventures, Erin starting her dietetic internship, Dondi doing his thing at work, and moving our tiny house. Here’s the last month or so in pics. . . enjoy!
Our friend Rebecca, Erin, and Dondi celebrating Erin’s MS thesis defense at Scrumpy’s. . . the new cidery in Fort Collins
Erin and Dondi mountain biking near Estes Park, CO before the big flood
The start of the boulder path to Castle Peak near Aspen, Colorado
Erin and Dondi at the top of Castle Peak- peak by noon, ate lunch, then got ready for our next adventure (beyond getting back to the truck). . .
The view from the top of Castle Peak- we made it up our first 14-er!
The view of Pearl Pass Road from the top of Castle Peak (aka, our next adventure)
One of the “dicey” spots on Pearl Pass Road. . . we should have thought twice before taking Dondi’s stock 4WD truck up an old US Forest Service Road
We made it to the peak of Pearl Pass (nevermind the lightning and everything literally buzzing. . .)– the map said the road was 6 miles long, not 19 MORE miles to Crested Butte!
The other end of the “road that never ends” through the aspen trees. . . Erin even made up a song: “this is the road that never ends, it goes on and on my friend, some crazy people started driving it not knowing what it was, and then they kept on driving it forever just because. . .” (they really really didn’t want to turn around and go back the same way they came) LOL!
If Pearl Pass Road wasn’t enough for that weekend in September, Erin and Dondi decided to go check out the Crystal Mill while near Marble, CO
We made it to Crystal Mill about 5 miles down the 4WD road right before a major downpour, it sure was beautiful
Driving North from Crystal Mill, we stopped in and checked out the field of planes, campers, and food trucks. Maybe our next adventure will be flying??
Tiny home moving day! Pulling our house down the dirt road we lived on. . .
Our house was on display at the NCRES (Northern Colorado Renewable Energy Society) event at Swing Station en route to our new location in Fort Collins, CO- who would’ve thought 150+ people would be able to walk through/fit in our little house in a couple hours!?
With all the rain we’ve had, we got a little stuck at the gate
Our tiny house Soleil in its new spot in Fort Collins- near the bee hives and horses
Good morning snow on October 18th. . . it was a bit too early to be excited about snow but it sure was pretty!
That’s all of our adventures and tiny home moving for now. Leave us a comment if you’d like! We love to hear from you. =) -Erin & Dondi
