Horsetooth Resevior

This weekend was jam-packed with activity and fun! Early Saturday morning, Joe and I headed to the Fort Collins area to do some climbing/camping/exploring.  We got there, snagged a great campsite and then hit the rocks!IMG_1051[1]IMG_1062[1]

We climbed for a couple hours on Rotary Wall and then went to pick up some essentials 🙂IMG_1064[1]

We decided to hang out and play some cards for a bit before getting the fire going.DSCN0340[1]

Eventually we got hungry, so Joe set to work getting the fire going and I did a little dinner prep. There wasn’t much for me to do – I had gotten everything mostly ready at home. We tried a new camping recipe for black bean chicken chilli and it was SO GOOD!! I will definitely be making this again 🙂DSCN0345[1]DSCN0349[1]DSCN0356[1]DSCN0363[1]

We hung out by the fire for a while and then called it a night. The next morning we had a quick breakfast and coffee, packed up camp and headed back to the rocks.DSCN0399[1] DSCN0401[1]

This time we went to a new area which involved quite a bit of hiking. Luckily the hip held up ok!

After we were totally exhausted, we headed into the town of Fort Collins to grab a bite to eat. We ended up at Coppersmith’s Pub and Brewing and I had an amazing grilled chicken and brie sandwich.IMG_1063[1]

We also walked around Old Town Fort Collins for a bit and obviously took a pit stop at a HUGE candy store…heaven!IMG_1058[1]IMG_1059[1]

All in all, another great weekend in the books! How was yours??

  7. What a fun weekend. I haven’t been camping in so long – I guess I’ll just have to live vigorously through you.

    Question: how did you like the smore’s gold fish?

    • ya know….they are just ok.
      I like the graham and chocolate fishes, but there are also little marshmallow ones that I don’t like (kinda like lucky charms marshmallows).
