DESTINATION: COLORADO

Destination: Colorado... Epic Adventure Awaits

So my girlfriend, my son, and I have decided to take a little road trip for the Thanksgiving holiday. Our destination... Colorado.

My girlfriend has family there and badly wants to see them, and being adventurers as we are, we decided it would be great to take a little road trip. Little is an ambiguous term as it is about 1100 miles one way.

Aside from seeing her family, we look forward to hiking, skiing, and mountain biking, as well as other potential adventures in and around the Denver area. Not to mention, the adventure of the road trip itself. I am particularly looking forward to hiking and/or biking the Red Rocks/Dakota Ridge area. Living in Corpus Christi at sea level, there is no real way to prepare for the possibility of altitude sickness, so all safety precautions will be in place and we will save the strenuous stuff toward the end of the trip.

We depart Corpus Christi on Saturday November 23 and plan to return on Sunday December 1... I will try to provide updates as we go, but will definitely have a recap of the adventure when we are done.

Happy Turkey Day Everyone!!!
