June was seriously insane! With baseball, packing a house, closing on a house, moving, and an upcoming Catechism retreat I didn't think we'd have time to do anything fun and exciting for our anniversary, but my awesome Lutheran Stud had other plans.
Guess what? In the middle of June there was still snow at higher elevations.
We landed in Aspen for a few days. It was such a fun little town. We walked all over town. The weather couldn't have been any nicer.
My bucket list has the Maroon Bells on it because I've heard how beautiful it is and it did not disappoint. We caught a bus in town that took us right up to the Maroon Bells area and then we decided to do a little hiking.
The trail was beautiful, full of Aspen trees and green leaves. There were also waterfalls everywhere with super fast flowing water. The water run-off from the snowy mountains was quite a rush.
Jimmy Bodega's was pretty great. The food was fabulous as was the atmosphere. We sat outside and had so much fun people watching. Who knew cocktail sauce could look so good smeared on a plate?
After talking to several people around town we decided to do one last hike before heading home. This was a steep hike, but it lead us to be able to view the entire town from high above. The view was definitely worth it for the difficult, but satisfying hike.
Fifteen years and counting. I wouldn't want to spend it with anyone else. I love you, Jared!
