Today was amazing!
We started out the day in Creede visiting the Creede museum which was filled with amazing artifacts from the past, went on a mine tour that was built to educate people on the evolution of mining and then drove the dirt road on Bacholors Loop that made us push past our fears. Holy cow!!! It was very scary ( for me at least). Steep grades, narrow roads. But it was so beautiful and the history that lay in ruins on the mountains leaves you in awe of the shear magnitude of it all. Look closely at the pictures to see just how far up the structures were built; all to extract silver.
We finished our day having an amazing dinner on the patio at Antlers Lodge with the Rio Grande as our backdrop. Our server (who was one of the leading actors of the play we went to last night (Kind of Red) serenaded us at the end of our dinner.
We finished our evening with a game of pool in the Lodge. Gene won of course! He's still a very good pool player.
I don't take any of this for granted and I'm thankful and blessed.
