Jonny took the day off work and we took a little drive up to Fort Collins to play on the Blue Sky Trail.
Lots of pretty red cliffs and mahvelous single track.
There's still a ton of snow on the Continental Divide. The mountains got slammed with snow this year and I never once made the trip up to enjoy it. Oh well, I couldn't be bothered with the driving was the biggest reason but also it was so mild down here I chose not to go up there.
We had a little adventure too. Say hello to my leetle friend.
Awww, wook at da wee baby woogums.
It's hard to tell from the photo because there's nothing for scale and I was not going to put my foot next to it but it's a baby. And it's a rattlesnake in case you didn't notice. The babies are oftentimes more dangerous than the adults because they don't control their venom, they hit you with a full shot. It was frozen in the middle of the trail so we had to go around in the grass which was a bit nerve wracking because maybe there was a whole nest of them lurking in there or maybe this one would decide to lunge at our calves but thankfully we got out of the ordeal unscathed.
I think they might want to put this sign at the trail head rather than at the end of the trail.
On the way home we decided to try a new to us vegetarian Venezuelan restaurant called Zudaka. I can't believe this place is less than a mile away and has been there maybe a year or more and we haven't tried it. I also can't believe how quickly we snarfed everything down. SO amazing. We shared orders of the hallaquitas and pabellon and don't even ask me to explain what they were, you should come to Boulder and try them yourselves. The nice lady that owns the place will explain how to eat them. Plus you can stop at the Med Shed two doors down for all your medical marijuana needs.
Tired legs, sore hip, maybe this wasn't the best idea the day before and agility trial but it was totally worth it.
