I only have one more posts after this from our time in Breckenridge this fall. I’m pretty sure this is a new record for me on how long it took to post a trip. I’m usually pretty on top of it but I’m still trying to figure out how to prioritize what needs to be accomplished and writing has sadly been at the bottom of my list. But, on to Carter Park. I have seen this easy hike listed on several websites and we finally decided to see what it was all about.
It starts in town (at Carter Park) and is really popular with mountain bikers. It is not as quiet or secluded as what we tend to prefer but we wanted to try it anyway. The views of the town and the mountain from the trailhead are amazing. Once you go up the steep staircase you have a few different trails you can choose from to take you higher up the mountain and are probably more of what we are usually looking for. I could tell that our little crew wasn’t up for much that day so we just walked for a little while and when someone started complaing that their stomach hurt we headed down and went home.
So, it wasn’t really a hike for us but it was nice to just get out and walk, get fresh air and enjoy one of our last days.
Then the snow started the next day and we were so happy.
We were suppose to leave the next morning. I had started packing our stuff and then we got an email from the airline stating that our flight would likely have delays or be cancelled because of the winter storm in the area and to please call to reschedule our flight, at no cost to us. WHAT?! Um yes please. We were happy to stay a few extra days. We are never ready to leave the mountains and this was a sign that we just needed to be here. We changed out flight and ended up getting an extra two days.
Which we fully enjoyed.
And now I’m off to start packing the house again. I took a break for a little while when our move in date got pushed back but now I see stuff piling up and I know I need to get back to it. And yes, I said move in date because it’s almost time for us to move and I know I haven’t posted a house update since this summer. It’s on my list. I’ll post before we move in, I promise. Have a great weekend friends!
