Snow day and new backpacking departure

With the snow falling, and temps dropping we huddled indoors today for the first time since becoming a pod. It is hard to believe that just yesterday we were hiking in 90 degree temps – and suddenly winter has arrived!

Today was filled with deep discussion about conquest of the west and the implications it has had and still has on the people of the land here today. After an intense game of geography jeopardy, we all pitched in to make tamales for dinner with the veggies harvested from Dennis’s farm we were just at a few days ago. They were delicious!

We have decided to take another day in Boulder tomorrow – waiting out the worst of the storm here. On Thursday we will finally be heading out on our backcountry time in Rocky Mountain National Park!
