Postcards from Rocky Mountain National Park: Get away

A few weeks ago my girl friend and I decided (on somewhat of a whim) to get away and spend a few days out in the wilds of the Rocky Mountain National Forrest.  With winter approaching way too fast, and our tendency to hibernate entirely indoors over the cold months, we decided to rent a little house just a few miles from the entrance to the park. Once again Airbnb came through with an amazing view and a cozy spot for us to chill out. Here are a few shots from the weekend of hiking and enjoying the great outdoors.

Although mornings in the mountains are pretty chilly already, a hot cup of coffee makes up the difference.

Skipping stones…or something like it on the way to Alberta Falls. (more…)

The Eagle’s Nest – Kastel, Croatia

Yesterday we connected with fellow hikers Ivona and Ivo on Couchsurfing for some hiking up the Kozjak mountains near where we are staying in Split. We ended up at this place called the Eagle’s Nest and had lunch. Amazing food (olives, cheese, bread, and Croatian liquor called rakija) amazing Dalmatian sunshine, amazing new friends and of course amazing views. After heading back down they graciously gave us a tour of their hometown of Kastel as well as a tour of the UNESCO village of Trogir then took us out to dinner at their favorite local spot. We all ended up sunburned and exhausted – but it was one of the best days we’ve had so far in Croatia! Hvala to Ivon and Ivo!

From the Eagle’s Nest you can see Split (left) Kastel (center) and Trogir (far right) ….as well as most of the Dalmatian islands in the Adriatic Sea.
