About halfway into summer we had decided we weren't going to take a vacation. But then I found a great deal on a hotel in Telluride, Colorado and we both really need a break from work so we decided to go for it. Matt has said "you can't express my love for Colorado in words", so I won't try, but for some reason he has always loved it, so it was the perfect place to go.
We spent three nights there and it was so wonderful. Our hotel was nice, the weather was awesome, and of course the company was great. :)
Our first day there we did something they call "via ferrata". Also called extreme hiking. It's basically a hike on the side of a mountain with iron holds and cables that you attach on with carabiners, climbing harness and nylon runners. On one section you are literally hanging onto the iron holds on the side of a cliff 400 feet in the air, with nothing beneath you. They call that part "the main event". There were a few times I was terrified but we made it to the end. 5 hours later.
The rest of the time we spent walking around the cute town, hiking some more, and eating good food. We can't wait to go back someday. If only it wasn't so far away.
