well the weekend had hit so eric was free from working. waking up to a hot cup of chai tea, we witnessed the rowers landing their boat right on sloan lake from our tea-sipping, porch perch. later that daywe decided to get out and enjoy the sunny weather that is common in that part of town. a short cruise up to boulder landed us at the trail head called mount sanitas trail just off of maplewood i believe. a great little hike to get a view, right outside of boulder. that was where we met local couch surfer ashley, who i am proud to call a true friend and like-minded soul. she arrived with style alongside her traveling companion, her friend's dog (princess) bhakti. we all hiked. we all talked. we all bonded. then we hiked some more.
i could not have asked for a better day.
