Yeah weird title eh? Well it was a weird weekend that involved travel throughout Colorado and southern Wyoming.
Last week I had to be at an event in Denver for work. My roomate came along so we could all meet up with our friend Wendy from Colorado Springs. So after the work gig, we spent Friday drinking coffee, catching up, cruising around the zoo, and getting educated in the Museum’s IMAX.
Can you believe the director of Jurassic Park did’t use them as extras?
Monkeys are by far the most entertaining animals at the zoo. This guy thought we were interesting at first…I gotta admit, I was afraid he might toss some poo at us.
There’s Wendy…can you find Carrie?
On Friday night, Carrie and I drove back to Junction, repacked, and headed out Saturday morning for Carrie’s hometown of Green River, WY. They were having a big river and arts festival that we checked out on Saturday. But I gotta admit, the highlight of my day was eating at Arctic Circle…just about the best gut-bomb fast food hamburger joint ever. We used to have one in Sheridan and my friends and I were serious regulars. I’ve missed it for about 10 years so I was extremely happy to indulge in some fry sauce. On Sunday morning we woke up to cloudy skies and nice cool temperatures so we went mountain biking.
It cleared up in the afternoon, but didn’t get much warmer than 78 degrees. We were determined however, to go cliff jumping at the Flaming Gorge and then camp before heading back on Monday morning. These cliffs are perfect for jumping so I scoped out my spot…
And that’s where the fun ended. What happened next is something I need to tell my parents about first before posting it in a blog. So I’ll get back to ya on that.
But we were given an awesome rainbow right by our campsite and a great night sitting around the fire along the lakeshore. Life is good!
