Dan and I drove up to the hills yesterday to meet some friends for lunch and celebrate a birthday. Our destination was the Wondervu Cafe in, of all places, the town of Wondervu. I wonder how it got its name?The Wondervu Cafe serves some of the best Mexican food in the area. It is to die for. On the outside, it looks like any other roadside business in a mountain town. But, step inside and you're greeting by mouthwatering aromas and a cozy, airy interior. Southwestern art brightens the walls, and in one corner stands a tall cactus plant cheerfully strewn with chili pepper lights. There's an outside patio that we've enjoyed on warmer days. They hadn't shoveled the snow off yet yesterday:) And there's a sweet shop right inside the cafe and a gift shop next door, always a plus in my book. And when you're done eating, you can grab some of the yummy goodness to take home, in the form of jars of Mile High Salsa and Mile High Hot Fudge Sauce.
It's the perfect place to gather with friends on a weekend, watch a football game in the bar, or just catch up with one another. Share a pitcher of margaritas or a Bloody Mary, and feast on huevos rancheros (Dan's choice) or seafood enchiladas (mine).
The drive home was pretty, too. The Rocky Mountains is a major range of mountains that runs from all the way up in Canada through the U.S. to Mexico. Almost 3,000 miles. But, when I think of the Rockies, this is what I picture, having spent most of my life with these mountains always in sight.
It's hard to believe we had two feet of snow on the ground just a couple days ago. That's Colorado for you. We weather the storms and a day or two later the sun comes out and melts it all away. Today, we are back to working on the deck, putting up some more rafters.
What are your plans for the day?
