TRUE LIFE: Colorado road trip. Two girls and a boy head to the mountains.

by s

A road trip inspired by Devotchka appearing at the Colorado Red Rocks Amphitheater. Performing with the Colorado Symphony.

Funded by turning it into a work trip.

Why not bring a boy; for entertainment purposes

and also the chance to give him the mountains to play on as well.

The Following:
A photo story of what reminded me (and maybe probably the other two as well) to keep moving forward.
The Crew: Michelle Hamburger with her working iphone and Hyundai, Devin Tolleson aka Dizzle aka Devizzle aka Shithead Tollymon with his Surly, and me with my road map. Plus all the snacks.

Slept under the stars. Woke up to a view. Buena Vista and mountains.

Crow, the dog we couchsurfed with, in Salida. 


Now, every time I hear Trente Møller, I think of this trip. 





Happy Birthday Dizzle. Devin’s friend got him a cake! 


Devin’s friend’s beautiful backyard. 


Our last night in Denver.

Random photos :
We dropped Devin off at the Colorado Trailhead and did our own thing most of the week while he mountain biked. So, you’ll have to read his blog to find out what his story is. Heh heh.
Another a$$ shot. Great to do some climbing, got a souvenir, knew our campsite was the one when we found a TV tucked in the brush. Eye roll. Wtf. “Hiked” on a super old railroad line. Easy walk. Stunning view. Ate a gummy, went to the Botanical Gardens, and were super duper impressed by the bee hive village. A hamburger cake. Michelle’s last name IS hamburger! It was a great metaphor for the trip. Or, my friend just happens to have the last name of a very popular kind of sandwich that also makes for a very entertaining cake suitable for any situation…. Well, we had fun. Cheers.
