And we found it.
We drove down the mountain for 15 minutes to the Hall Ranch Open Space in Boulder County and went for a hike 3000 feet lower than the lodge.
Sun on the water.
Singing Birds and frogs.
You know. Spring stuff.
Then the thunder and lightning started up the mountain from us, and we scurried back to the car.
We got back just in time.
Driving back up the mountain we passed this guy.
I felt bad for him, but I bet he felt worse. He is committed to his chosen sport.
When we got home, we thought we might have enough time for a quick bareback ride around the neighborhood.
I feel better now.
