Even though we stayed up late our first night in town, I was still up at 7:30 AM because it felt like 9:30. After we got up and situated, we went and picked up Huck. Callie was babysitting him for the day. He was the bonus dog that Callie told Timmy about before coming to visit. He was a little camera shy. He even ran and hid behind the bike. Then Callie took us on a little walking tour of Leadville. The town is bigger than I was expecting. I was also shocked at all the bikes but then I learned there was a bike race that weekend and people come from all over. So all the bikes made perfect sense.
Callie started to brew some tea that she was going to put in a container in the fridge to turn to iced tea. Well we forgot about it and after a little bit (long bit) smelled something burning. That pot there in the bottom row is the tea. Sad times. It was a big pot of it too. That was enough excitement for us for the day.
Callie said she wanted me to go for a run. Oh boy my first run at 12,000 ft elevation. She told me I'd be fine and that she ran 5 miles on her first day in Leadville. Later I found out that she did in fact run 5 miles her first day in Leadville but that she was in other towns in Colorado first and did not run 5 miles her first day in the state. Oh boy. I already wrote about the run but now you have some more pictures.
all pictures form the day, they are on my picasa. I definitely think I need to change my desktop images to one of the nice pictures around Turquoise Lake.
I feel like we did a lot more and were busy all day but now that I'm writing about it after returning home, I'm not remembering all the little details and at the time all the little details were so fun. I mean just sitting on couches with dogs was awesome. Sometimes we sat on the floor so the dogs could have the couches. We are too kind.
Man just looking at these makes me miss hanging out with Callie.
