A Wonderful Weekend


Phil and I wanted to find something fun to do this past weekend. We decided to take the Glenwood Springs gondola up to the top of the mountain and go to the caverns. The view was absolutely gorgeous. We purchased season passes because it wasn't much more than the normal pass and now when people come to visit, we can get discounted prices for them. We enjoyed the gondola ride on the way up and took a tour of the caverns. We had a new guide and we were his first tour ever! He did okay. I'm sure it will be even better next time when we get an experienced guide. There were many named formations including the "glowing cheeto." Check out the picture and I'm sure you'll be able to identify it. The favorite thing Phil and I did was go on the alpine slide two times. We blasted down the mountain. On the second time we didn't use the brakes at all and it was awesome! There were other things we didn't try that day but look forward to doing in the future (some of them when I'm no longer pregnant). There's a zip line, a HUGE over the mountain cliff swing, a bull ride, a climbing wall, horseback riding, a virtual conastoga wagon ride and soon there will be a petting zoo. Pretty cool stuff. We had a great time and would love to take freinds and family back to this fun place.
