It was such a beautiful day, starting out as every road trip should with a stop at Starbucks to get coffee for the road.
Cindy grew up in Leadville, a picturesque, historic little mining town that is at an elevation of 10,151 feet. We got the grand tour, including the house she grew up in and the church where she and Mike were married. We strolled the main street, stopped in at a variety of restaurants where the proprietors could not have been more friendly or helpful. And we did a little shopping. My husband would have been disappointed had I not;)
For lunch, we went back to our favorite restaurant that has a big patio out back with a gorgeous view. It would be a great place for a gathering. We stopped at a bakery to inquire about cakes, and to get coffee/tea/hot chocolate for the ride home.
Such a wonderful day, spending time with these two dear friends!
