Yesterday was just about the perfect day. Roman and myself slept in and then enjoyed a morning fire before heading over to play Conifer Park.
We had to hike in to play Conifer Park but out was well worth it. A lot of fun holes and beautiful views. As we finished our round a storm rolled in, but we made out back to the car before it got too heavy. Hole 8 was sponsored by a local restaurant, Zoka's. So we decided to check it out.
It was absolutely incredible. We tried an IPA from Avery Brewing Company. Roman had some spicy jackalope (rabbit & antelope) sausage and I had a spicy chicken and bacon ciabatta sandwich. Somehow still not full, we got chocolate milk stout brownies with raspberries, a huge scoop of ice cream, and covered in chocolate sauce. It was around this point that the clouds parted and the sun came out again.
We then decided to go hike Carpenter's Peak to burn off a few of those extra calories before taking Roman back to the airport. We were full of energy again and moving quick. Minus a short stop for a nosebleed I got, we got up the trail with no problem. We enjoyed the views and took tons of pictures. Again the weather held off until we were done with the hike, and as we left the park out began to rain again.
The trip to the airport we had amazing views of all different the weather patterns around us, saw a double rainbow, and manscursion reached the 4,000 mile mark. I don't know why I would ever leave CO, but manscursion continues on towards South Dakota through Wyoming.
