We couldn't let Mary and Al's trip to Colorado go by without a venture to the mountains. And, lucky for us and them, we had the most clear and beautiful day last Thursday and headed to Idaho Springs. We drove up the Mt. Evans road to about 12,000 feet. I then became worried about Isla's ears, so we headed back down the mountain and took in the beautiful scenery. We had a filling lunch at Beau Jo's, walked around the quaint town then headed home. We've vowed to make more trips to the mountains this summer since they're right on our doorstep!
