Bucket List Check Off ~ Hiking and Eat at a New Resturant

I am at it again! Today I was able to check off two of my bucket list items. This morning three friends and I left Wiggins and headed to Boulder for a nice hike in Chautauqua Park. Thankfully it was nice and cool and an all around beautiful day! We choose our path to take and took off. Sadly, I was not in as good of shape as I had thought or hoped, but I was able to accomplish the task. Slow and steady, one foot in front of the other!

At one point, we took a different path that lead farther up the Flatirons and led us to a great spot to look out over the town and surrounding areas.

 Not only was there a beautiful sight to see, but many of the rocks were large and flat, allowing people to make some seats to sit on to enjoy the sight and rest.

Even a lounge chair!

All together we had about a three mile hike and caused our bellies to make us think it was like the Grapes of Wrath, barren and dusty. So naturally, we headed to find some food. Kris and her family are fans of going to different breweries throughout the state, so I found one for us to try. Also I have on my list to eat at a new restaurant so we were killing two birds with one stone. We made our way to the ever so interesting Pearl Street to The Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery. They were known for their beer and burgers. The restaurant was decorated with fun and colorful art.

This was on the wall over by the window
and had a few different colors. I wasn't able to
capture all of the art, so only wanted to show a close
up of what it was made out of. I really liked it!
We ordered a sampler of eight different brews and explored the many different flavors. We enjoyed good conversation, good food and people watching.
Such a beautiful day getting out and being active with friends while enjoying God's beautiful creation!
