La Plata Peak

Happy Friday!

Y’all, I am so ready for the weekend. Like, more than you even know!

Guess what I get to do this weekend? Two fun things!

#1 Fun Thing:

La Plata Peak! This weekend is the 2012 inaugural 14er weekend, so we’re headed up to the Buena Vista area after work tonight so we can tackle the peak tomorrow morning. We are planning on staying up there tomorrow night also, just so we can hang out at the campsite, eat s’mores, drink beers, and watch the pups run around.

Guess what else? In addition to Craig and Cindy, there is going to be a Denver blogger meetup on the mountain! Both Heidi and Paula  are joining in on the fun, and three bloggers pretty much ensures far too many pics of the weekend. Stay tuned!

#2 Fun Thing:

The Bolder Boulder!

Every year, this massive 10k takes place on Memorial Day and this year is no exception. We are purposely coming back from the mountains on Sunday so we can all run this chaotic course on Monday.

The BB is always a good time, although very rarely is a race for time.There are soooooo many people and the course is covered with spectators offering you beer, cupcakes, cookies, and slip ‘n slides, just to name a few. I usually decide to play and frolic over the 6.2 miles instead of focus on running, but we’ll see what happens this year.

    Wow, both fun things sound awesome! Hubby and I were in Colorado to run Pikes Peak last year, and we really enjoyed the area. The La Plata Peak route reminds me of that. Have fun!

    We should set up a place to meet after the BB10k, we’ll be there as well and should all have a beer after!

      Fun– we’ll be super close! My friend is having a bbq after the BB so y’all are welcome to join! It’s kinda far east, but that’s where we’ll be 🙂

    What a great weekend you have planned! I love to go hiking but have never done an overnighter:) Have a great time and good luck in your 10k!

    Sounds like a blast, curious how much snow there will be on La Plata. We’ll be backpacking in Comanche Peaks Wilderness (slow going with almost 500 pounds of dogs).
