Joe and I had such an amazing time over the 4th of July, we headed back to the same campsite and rock wall this weekend.
We set up camp as soon as we could get there and made a quick fire and dinner – these dehydrated meals are really good when we are backpacking, but also amazing when we are short on daylight and HUNGRY!
We got up bright and early the next morning and set to work with coffee and breakfast. Greek yogurt with blueberries and homemade chia granola.
We had a goal to get to the rocks before anyone else and luckily we did. We were pretty much alone all weekend, which was awesome.
Joe and I both lead this route a bunch of times. It’s pretty mellow, but has some really tough spots, so continues to be a challenge.
Saturday afternoon, we had a little bit of a rain problem, so popped into these “very local” bar for a beer while the storm passed.
Eventually cleared up, so we headed to camp, made some snacks and played on the slackline…I’m getting a little better 😉
Dinner was naan pizza cooked over the fire. One buffalo chicken with broccoli and blue cheese. One zucchini & mushroom…both delicious!!
We were up early again on Sunday with bagels for breakfast and heading back to the rocks.
Thunderstorms moved in after a couple hours, so we didn’t climb long before heading back to pack up our campsite.
On the way back to Denver, we stopped for a late lunch in Nederland at The Blue Mountain Smokehouse and Brewery. I had a pulled chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. SO GOOD.
How was your weekend? Anyone else go camping??
