Thats a milestone right? Apparently it is a park and we are not aloud to camp there… the fire rings had us confused, oh well.
So we spent a couple nights in a pretty awesome spot in Silverton. Gave me some free access to wifi will the children played and gave Seth a chance to head up the the avalanche shoot to the top of Kendall mountain, pretty cool stuff. But then we were told we couldn’t stay…oops.
We decided to head out the “the bus” and were slightly lied to about how far this adventure would be (thanks to my +1!). Sometimes its nice to have no idea what you are in for during the day and to just take it nice and slow with no expectations. It took us 3 hours to make the trek and we were greeted by a kids dream.
The kids played, ate, and explored an old mine shaft (maybe it was). A great time was had by all but eventually the clouds began rolling in and it was time to head back down.
I decided to mapmyrun it on the way down to check out the distance, only a 6+ miles down… hmmm thats why it took so long to get up! There was a small injury which is the tell tale sign of a great time!
Today was spend on the Silverton 6,12,24 hour course. Its a one mile loop with 250 feet gain, pretty awesome. Tea had a great time rock’n it with Daddy and knocking out 10 miles, while Tajh took a nice dive and wrecked himself at 8. Tay even managed to get 3 miles in!
We have a couple more sleeping in the car nights ahead of us. We all seem to enjoy the nomadicness is allows. No tent to put up and take down, just a grill to get out and cook on. It gives us the freedom of kind of going wherever we want without too much stress, pretty sweet.
