This post brings me to the last day of our Colorado vacation. *tear* Most of our trip we flew by the seat of our pants, but one thing we did plan, whitewater rafting. Brooke booked us a trip down The Numbers with A.V.A. The Numbers is host to 7 class III-IV rapids. Knowing what we know now, next time we are going for the big water, class V. Either way, we had a blast. I don’t think any of us quit smiling or giggling the entire way down the river. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pics from the rafting trip. I guess I better hang onto the mental images as long as I can.
We drove from Basalt to Granite, our raft launching destination. Magnificent scenery met us at every turn along the way. Hands down, this was the most beautiful drive I have ever done. Independence Pass is a definite must see…don’t miss it if you are in the area.
Colorado Springs was the last stop on our trip. Pampering ourselves for the final night, we booked a hotel room at the Hilton Antlers. As luck would have it, there was a local micro-brewery and restaurant just across the street. Indulging in the tasty offerings of micro-brew, we enjoyed a great dinner and lots of laughs. We ended the trip on a very high note. Is it time to go back yet?
Ready to return,
