I Bet Yurt Excited

27 03 2010

We have arrived back from our yurt trip.  It was a nice relaxing couple of days.  As usual it was hectic getting ready, packing and organizing but it was worth it!

Vanessa and I started off the trip by waking up at 6:30 when we were supposed to pick Pam and Brian up at their house at 6am.  Needless to say, we were running late.  Once we were on the road, everything was smooth sailing!  The trip up was fairly uneventful, other than passing through Ft. Collins and both V and I remembering how much we love the town and someday (after our adventures) would like to settle down there.

The hike to the North Canadian Fork Yurt was only 1.1 miles but I was a little scared because the previous week one of my lovely soccer players took out my knee during practice and I have since been hobbling around.  So, unlike past years when I wished we hiked further, this year I couldn’t have been happier to have a short hike in.

The brief hike was plesant.  There was a nice balance of up hill and down and before we knew it we were arriving at the yurt.  It is set in a nice medow and I can only imagine the beauty during the fall with leafs change color.

The days were uneventful other than eating and doing the random chores, such as, chopping wood, filtering water and general pick up.  We played a ton of UNO and Scrabble and had a chance to catch up on some reading.

The weather was nice for the most part.  On the hike in it snowed some but then we had two perfect days and on our last day we had snow to hike out in.  The snow on the way out made for the usual terrible drive home; this is the third year in a row that the drive home has taken more than 4 hours!  But as a bonus we did get to see a moose on the way out!

Here a some pictures from the trip:

Do you think they’ll have yurts in Costa Rica? We should all invest in one if not 🙂
