I had Monday and Tuesday off from work for fall break. It was generally quite nice to get the days off, although both days I checked my email multiple times and did a bit of work. Even days off and I can’t get away. Am I becoming a workaholic? I never thought I’d be like that!
Anyways, on Tuesday I got to hang out with my sister, Kaitlin! We ended up going to Dinosaur Ridge and walked the whole paved path this time (last time it started raining on us so we ended up leaving shortly after we arrived). Next time we’ll have to go on the dirt trail as well. Or go to a new hiking location!
We went into the gift shop for a bit. I thought it was a museum so I was disappointed when there were just a few museum-type things. But Kaitlin found some cool items in the store to look at, so that was fun. Going in there made me think how much we would have loved it when we were kids. We would have wanted to buy many of the things in there.
After the gift shop we went on the path and saw some gorgeous rocks, dinosaur bones, and fossils. We also saw some lovely views of Colorado and Red Rocks.
I’m so glad we were able to hang out. She lives 40 minutes away from me so we don’t see each other very often. Although Colorado isn’t the largest state, the cities are definitely spread out. Or, there are at least so many of them that it seems that way. With me not getting home until 6 every day, it makes seeing each other during the week a bit difficult. So this was a nice treat!
