I wanted to make sure to record one of the coolest things we did while we were in Colorado. The house we stayed in has an attached lodge with an open upstairs and huge downstairs. Comfy furniture, a wooden canoe hanging from the ceiling, iron chandeliers, skis, oars and animal skins here and there.
The steps up to the upper room are logs split in half and shined, the center post in the room is a de-barked tree with multiple branches. (see photos) We were honored to have the owners of the home invite us to put our name on the tree to commemorate our time in the wonderful Colorado home. Because the snow had been falling for 24 hours, we chose snowflakes and I burnt our names (permantly) in the tree bark. How cool is that?
