Weekend of Celebration Day 1

After I got home from a late business trip the night before (details on that trip soon), Jason and I got up early on Saturday morning to hit the Paris Street market on our way out of town.

We filled up the tank and drove about 250 miles to Grand Junction.

Once we finally got to that side of the slope we grabbed some lunch and then took a drive through the Colorado Monument. The rain was just starting to roll in for the afternoon, but the sights were still just as beautiful and the mountain-sides just as steep. I often get irrational fears on steep drives that the car is just going to blow off of the side of the mountain, so as you can imagine I was pretty fearful on this drive.

We stopped at a few wineries and had a great dinner before taking a soak in the hot tub. All in all a very successful first day to our weekend getaway. Look for Day #2 coming tomorrow, with another full post of photos.
