Hiking Red Rocks

On Saturday....we went hiking.

It was 90 degrees so MY plan was to go to Evergreen where it would be cooler and we could find a couple letterboxes.

No one listens to me.

We went to Red Rocks Park (home of the famous Red Rock Amphitheater) and hiked in the dessert and rocks.

Before we started our hike...I had to use the restroom.  There was a wedding going on at the gift shop and the woman's facilities were on the side of the wedding.  So there was a nice woman standing there telling me the potty was closed.  She offered me two solutions.

  • Men's room
  • Walk waddle a quarter mile to the port-a-potty.

I walked into the men's room just in time to see.....something I didn't want to see.

I decided to huff it the half mile to the potty and back.

Towards the end of our hike....I was experiencing heat stroke and decided to find words that rhymed with disintegrate.

I started with applegate.
then uriniate.
the fornicate.
Keith offered up master....

We stopped for a water break right after that.

Here is a short video of our experience.

We did finally make it to Evergreen.....where it all began almost 8 years ago! I can't believe I got iKeith to go back there.

Later that night we went to a Sangria Party and had a great time!  We were thrilled to be invited to something....people like us...they really like us!

What did you do this weekend?


  1. I had high ambitions for this weekend.

    Then I went and bought the iPad. Enough said?

  2. I'm jealous you went hiking AND it appears you had a beautiful weekend. We did not. Lame.

    Can you tell me what letterboxes are? Are they like Geo-caches? I know I could Google it, but I get so much joy out of having you explain things to me.

  3. Hiking is on my list of things to do in 2011. I wanna go hiking with you. That would be a BLAST!

    I would have told the bitch guarding the women's restroom that I could take her down and pushed my way in there. I don't like confrontation but when I need to potty, I NEED TO POTTY.

  4. I think maybe I'll ignore the ninety degrees is hot thing...

    "But it's a dry heat..." Isn't that what everyone says?

    That does look like a fun hike, but it is super important to drink a lot of water. And I would ALWAYS vote for the cooler location. Always!

  5. I can't even count how many times I've walked into something I didn't want to see in a men's room. Pretty sure I saw an old couple doing the nasty in a half closed stall one time. Gross.

    You're probably wondering why I see so much in mens room's. When I see a huge long line for the women's, it pisses (no pun intended) me off. I hate waiting, so I just go in the mens. But I haven't since I saw the old couple doing it. I'd rather wait. :o)

  6. It's absolutely beautiful out there! I'm glad you got him to go, but sorry you had to see what you didn't want to see!

  7. a hike sounds so fun right now... just not here with our 107 degree weather! and a sangria party? my kind of party!!!

  8. I think I would have skipped the hiking and gone straight for the sangria party! Sounds fun! Glad you had such an action-packed weekend!

  9. Did you at least lose 10 lobs from sweating??? Looks like a beautiful day despite the heat. And I'm of the philosophy that if you get married at a public place, you have to share the bathrooms!

  10. Sounds like fun - minus the heatstroke, those suck.

    Took a long walk, I've no conditioning for hikes...

  11. No one ever listens to mom.


    even though we are always right.

    And what the heck is a sangria party???


  12. I'm on the edge of my seat right now...what did you SEEEEEE???

  13. LOL - somehow I'm not envious of that hike :) Now Sangria? That sounds like fun!

  14. @Sugar. The item that I saw....rhymes with weanus.


  15. iKeith totally rocked that bag!!! Nobody listens to me either and I would never have agreed to hiking in that heat ;)

  16. Awesome video - I definitely would have listened to you and gone the short way to the gift shop - hopefully the AC'd gift shop filled with lots of cold drinks!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
