Colorado Trip: Day 3 & 4 Grand Junction and Home Again

Saturday was Graduation Day.  It was a beautiful day to see Haley graduate.

My mom made Haley’s morterboard, she wanted a piece of Portland while walking across the stage.  I think she did a great job. It lit up.

After graduation we went to Bin Foodbar 707 to have a celebratory meal.

We had two appetizers which were a fried artichoke with aoili and fried cauliflower with a miso pesto sauce with burrata.  This was phenomenal, I could cuddle up on a couch and eat this all day.

They made a wonderful mint ice tea.  It was so good, I am going to try to replicate.  Everything about this restaurant was fabulous.  Service was exceptional and all of our meals were wonderful.

The rest of the day we spent walking main street.  I found some pieces to repurpose for our jewelry.  If you like antiques this is the place to to, they had a wide assortment and the prices were fair.    We called it a night early and went to bed.  Leaving Sunday we flew out early.  I will  say Denver Airport was interesting, I found it a little hard to navigate.  Overall our trip was a success, we only had a few Griswold moments the main one was going through security with a cinnamon roll but we made it.

 

 

Colorado Trip: Day 2 Denver to Grand Junction

We left early on Friday and spent the day driving to Grand Junction.  The drive is 4 hours if you don’t stop  but we stopped several times.  One of our favorite stops was Frisco.

This town was a lot of fun. Filled with stores and places to eat.  They had several consignment shops that we found items to repurpose.   If I came back to Colorado I would seriously think about staying here.

There was a Museum with a lot of small cabins that I think would have been a lot of fun to explore.  I did walk around it but didn’t do the full tour.

We also stopped in Glennwood Springs.   We saw these air trams and they didn’t look like they were moving to us but if you like heights what a way to see the town.   We were running out of time by the time we hit Glennwood Springs but this looked like a town you could get lost in exploring for a couple of days. The drive was absolutely beautiful and we arrived in Grand Junction had dinner and rested for the big event the next day.
