RockyGrass Bluegrass Festival 2016!

I'm heading out tomorrow night up to Lyons, CO for Folks Fest, aka my favorite time of year! A few weeks ago I attended RockyGrass which is another festival put on by Planet Bluegrass, the organization that puts on Telluride Bluegrass Fest and Folks Fest. Here are some pictures from the 7/22/16 RockyGrass weekend fest in Lyons.

One of the best parts of the fest are the campground jams.

Hammock camp life.

Sitting on chairs in the river, drinking beers, listening to music, hanging with friends.

4th of July Retreat to the Mountains

We went camping with our friends Christine and Lindsay and their kids over the 4th of July weekend.

We headed out to Buffalo Creek, about a 90 minute drive southwest of Denver, for a super remote mountain and tree-filled getaway.

The kids found so many different ways to entertain themselves including: burning sticks in the fire, adding kindling to the fire, hanging out in our laps, mixing drinks (we had no idea what was in them, but were certain there was kerosene, and didn't drink them), being goofy. 

While the kids had a blast entertaining themselves, so did the adults! We introduced Lindsay to cooking over an open fire for the first time, caught up on life, talked about life (as you can do only with a campfire), and drank some beers.

Thanks for the great getaway, Christine & Lindsay!

Cali Roadtrip Reflection Pt 5: Sonoma and Lake Tahoe

Andy and I left San Fran on Thursday 8/6/15 and headed to Sonoma, by way of Russian River Brewery. We spent just one night in a Sonoma hotel, but definitely got bang for our buck drinking our way through wine country!

Hungover breakfast on our way out of town. Those milkshakes...

We left Sonoma on Friday 8/7/15 and drove to the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe. We had a campsite reserved there, and it ended up being such a beautiful, nature-filled campground. 


We spend just the one night at Tahoe and drove to Park City, UT for the night of Saturday 8/8/15. I guess I didn't take pictures of our time in Utah, but we went to Uinta Brewing Company, and stayed in one of the coolest airbnb rentals! But I guess you'll just have to take my word on it.

And then we went home! We arrived back in Denver the night of Sunday 8/9/15. And just like that, it was all over. I hope you've enjoyed the look-back on our two week California road trip. I certainly have enjoyed reliving it and sharing pictures with you.
