Tuesday Oct. 30 - Woke up in Telluride, Colorado and went to Hannah's bar for sandwhich's. Made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner and then went to Laura's bar for a poetry slam and trivia.

Wednesday Oct. 31 - We went for a short hike to a waterfall and a stream. When we got back to town we saw a Halloween parade with all the kids from town dressed up in costumes. In the evening, Andy dressed up as Thor and I dressed up as a cowgirl and we went to Laura's coffee house/bar to sing karaoke and hang out with geneva's friends.

Thursday Nov. 1 - I woke up and made cinnamon rolls and then ran along the san miguel river trail. It was a tough run because of the elevation but absolutely stunning views.

Friday Nov. 2 - We went on a hike called Via Ferrata that's considered "extreme hiking" if you google it. The hike is at about 10,000 ft elevation and you clip a carabener to some cables to shimmy along the side of a mountain. It's more terrifying than it sounds. Fun fact -- "via ferrata" means "by way of iron" in italian. The

wow, that "hike" is amazing. Looks like the nearest thing to bungee jumping there is! So glad you two are having such a great time. Love you, need I say, "stay safe"? Linda/Mom
