Georgetown – Fun Stuff

I have given up trying to write chronologically about our trip.  I think it will be easier and faster to post topically instead.  Here are some of the really fun experiences various ones of us have had thus far.

Skiing in gorgeous weather on Monday (Scott, Jessica, Josiah, and Andrew)

Proving that it is possible to coast all the way – that would be 12 miles – from Loveland to Georgetown (Patty)

Seeing bighorn sheep beside the shoulder of the freeway numerous times, generally between Idaho Springs and Empire (all of us)

Locating piano music in the Georgetown Library and checking it out on the honor system (Patty)

Grocery shopping at Safeway (Jessica and Patty)

Organizing our house, food, and supplies (Patty and Jessica)

Exploring Alvarado Cemetery (Jessica and Patty)

The grand bike excursion from Georgetown down to North Spring Gulch Road AND from Bakerville down to Georgetown (Scott, Josiah, Jessica, and Andrew road bikes; Patty followed in the “pilot car.”)
