Friday Favorites 6-Colorado Day 3

1. The peace and quiet of a GREAT hotel and 1 orange.  

That doesn’t sound very exciting does it? Neither does altitude sickness. I woke up no less than 15 times during the night with extreme nausea and headache. We spent a lot of time at 14,000ft on Thursday and I hoped the fatigue and headache would go away but around 2:00 am, things got worse. Stephen went exploring while I crashed in the room. We had a 3rd floor room on the end with a great view and it was very quiet so I was able to sleep some. Hot water for baths and low lights were extra perks. I started feeling better early afternoon.

2. Spinach

I didn’t want anything heavy for lunch, so I tried some soup and a spinach salad. I gobbled that whole plate up and would have had more if the guy offered it to me.

3. Starbucks

After lunch, we made the traditional trip to Starbucks. During our first year, we passed the intersection of hwy 24 and 31st street about 8 times. Each time we passed the Starbucks, I thought I needed a coffee, latte, or hot chocolate and Stephen started pulling in before I asked. Each trip to Co. Springs, we have to visit and talk about the adventures we’ve had each year. This year was no different.
