Today we drove the 60-some miles north to Fort Collins. We had to pick up a dressage saddle from a repair shop and Wendi wanted to visit with a friend of hers who runs a stained glass business in a neighboring town of Laporte.
Until the other day, it hadn’t snowed much this fall; that’s been unusual. However, it definitely made up for it when it did snow. We had about six inches at our place. Though we enjoyed our quiet Christmas day in, and I worked from home the day after Christmas because of the heavy snowfall, we needed to get out.
My favorite treat in Lakewood is A Taste of Denmark‘s jalapeno, ham, and cheese croissant. Their website needs a lot of work, but the croissants are perfect. We started our day with a stop there, grabbed a coffee, then headed north.
On the way back on US 287, I asked Wendi to snap a couple of photos of the mountains.
