Road Trip to Grand Lake

This weekend Jen and I road tripped to Grand Lake, CO on a short "staycation". Friday night we stayed in Winterpark and enjoyed a little Duchess de Bourgogne, my favorite Belgium brew, at the Cheeky Monk. Saturday we drove to Grand Lake and camped near Stillwater Pass, where Jen finally went too far trying to stay warm. Using two sleeping bags, wool socks and foot warmers, she managed to melt her toenail polish. Finally on Sunday, we completed the loop back to Denver by driving through Rocky Mountain National Park.
