More Visitors!

Ashley's parents arrived in Boulder on July 4th and are staying with us until the 12th. I've been working most of the time they've been here, but we did go on a nice road trip to Ouray, CO over the weekend. We spent Friday night in Glenwood Springs, so Ashley and I rode up Glenwood Canyon on the bike path on Saturday morning before traveling to Ouray. It rained most of the time we were there, which was both good and bad - bad because we couldn't see all the peaks around the town, and good because the rain made the waterfalls more spectacular. In Ouray we went on a mine tour of the Bachelor-Syracuse Mine where we rode a small rail car 1 km into the side of the mountain, hiked up to a few different waterfalls, and ate a fantastic steak dinner.

Due to all the rain, we've resorted to Oregon strategy - stay inside and play cards. There have been some intense battles over the past few days, and I'm sure there will be a few more before Al and Karen leave.
