We have really enjoyed our weekend away here in Evergreen Colorado. I'm writing this from a hammock in the backyard of the cabin we stayed in. The view from here is green everywhere and the sound of the creek is relaxing!

I hope we are able to come back here again sometime. This little cabin by the creek has been really enjoyable. The beautiful backyard on the creek's edge is wonderful. There really is no reason to go anywhere else.

We enjoyed "The Sound of Music" last night at a local theater. It was fully done by local talent who did a great job. We met a really nice couple there who I hope look us up when they come to Gilbert in a few weeks to visit relatives.

We had our last breakfast at the County Road Cafe this morning. Although I don't need the calories, they make the biggest breakfast I've ever seen. One pancake could feed an entire family!

The proprietors here are really nice and have gone out of their way to make us very comfortable. The owner has especially treated us like gold! We would definitely do this again and we would highly recommend it to others.

The cabin we stayed in is called the "Bootlegger's Barn". It has been decorated with the theme of whiskey barrels. The bathroom sink is set in a whiskey barrel and there are four barrels built into the shower wall! You can see barrel slats in parts of the outside fence, the outside deck and in the stair banister. It's all very creative. Everything is really rustic but very comfortable.

In our last few hours, we drove to the top of Mt. Evans. We hiked up to Summit Lake and took some beautiful pictures. On the way down, we stopped several times to take pictures of the forest with it's yellow fall leaves.
