Hiking with friends.

One of our awesome friends from Chicago
came to visit for a couple of days last week.

We took advantage of the gorgeous 
weather & went on a favorite hike
of mine.

Uh oh, altitude....

Getting a closer look at the rock face.

Pointing out Boulder landmarks.

Nice, but, um...we're still not at the top.

Best seat in the house.

They are number 1.

I was there, too!

Other highlights of Adam's visit include eating
lots & lots of yummy food.

We love showing off Colorado,
and love seeing friends even more!

On landing at dusk

Our late afternoon stroll last Friday
(pre-Springing Forward)
ended with the rapid
onset of dusk.

Just across the road from the
local airport,
we reveled in the small
aircraft racing the encroaching darkness, 
seemingly milking every last ray
for their flights
before the sun disappeared behind the mountains.

Last night Z took me out for an
early birthday dinner, 
since we'll both be working on 
my real birthday.

Spring is starting to show up, 
bringing some amazing weather, so
I decided that I wanted to stop for a few
new photos before we ate.

Here are some of the fun shots we got.

This week...

I normally work an alternative schedule, 
longer hours for 4 days a week
then 3 days off.
But this week I ended up working
normal people hours, 
which unfortunately meant that
I had a crazy-long commute each day.

While I was stopped in traffic one evening
I snapped this photo.

Changing up my schedule was nice
for a week, but I'm looking forward 
to getting back my short commute & long weekends!
