Day 4 — can’t end Ash’s Colorado journey (and trip back to Jersey) without some high-altitude snow.

Started off the day at my favourite Boulder breakfast spot — Lucille’s.  Red beans, rice and beignets (and towering praline waffles if you’re not carb counting).  Beignets — yep, gotta 🙂  Or as Ash canted: gotta have some of those ‘man-catching beignets’, remembering a line from Disney’s ‘Princess and the Frog’. LOL>
Ok, now we’re waddling like penguins — time for our Day 4 hike!  Repeat hike for Ro & I but only an hour away, guaranteed snow AND an amazing lake view — she’ll come back with that memory!  Wearing a souvenir sweatshirt (it’s been a FANTASTIC trip :)), we hiked Brainard Lake — yeah, that’s 10,300 ft UP.  ROCKSTAR half day! 

Took last vacation pics.  Wasn’t super clothes-focused this morning and picked ALL colours on my wheel.  Sometimes just gotta laugh (album pic).  Made time on e-470 (our pricey ‘expressway’) and grabbed a last bite & brew at Boulder Beer Company (at the airport).  

Ho, hmmm; she’s gone.  But dang, it was a FUN FULL 4 days!  Sand, sun & snow — LOVE LOVE LOVE my Colorado life !
