Road Trip

Ryan has been crazy busy with work and school,  we [he] really needed this time away to relax. We did just that. We escaped to the mountains and it was absolutely perfect.  Spending one on one time away from day to day life was wonderful and just what we needed. The scenery was beautiful and we took full advantage of the outdoors.

We stopped along the way had a picnic, stopped again, took a dip in the hot springs, then checked in to the Limelight Hotel in Aspen. This hotel was great! It was walking distance to all the restaurants and the ski resort, the staff was so hospitable, and our room had perfect views. For dinner we ate at Matsuhisa, a Japanese restaurant that was highly recommended. The rock shrimp is not to be missed!

Aspen has a huge network of trails that weave in and out of beautiful groves of trees and along the streams. We made use of the hotel's complimentary cruiser bikes to take in all the scenery. On our bike ride we stumbled across an art museum we toured.  It really was a perfect weekend, I love you Ryan!
