Good and Bad Ideas in Colorado

In honor of a family trip to Colorado, I have a few good and bad ideas to share.

This is my first attempt at blogging from the WordPress app on my phone. If it looks odd I’ll edit from my computer later. 🙂

Good idea:
Picking out a rock at a shop to take home.

The legal way to bring home cool rocks

We had a great time shopping!

Bad idea:
Picking out a rock from a national park to take home.

Good idea:
Fishing with your kids on the
Arkansas River.
Bad idea:
Fishing with your kids on the Arkasas River from the Royal Gorge Bridge.

Seriously, the highest suspension bridge is not a good fishing location. I guess the sign is for extreme fishing enthusiasts crazy people.

Good idea:
Riding a ski lift to the top of a mountain.
Bad idea:
Riding a ski lift to the top of a mountain during a thunder storm.

My view as a thunderstorm let loose on us

Oh, yes, we did this. We rode the lift back down the mountain as the rain started and the thunder rolled. The lift closed before we got to the bottom. I don’t recommend it.

There are plenty more where these came from. After listening to my kids recite quotes from the Animaniacs for a couple of hours, these moments are jumping out at me. Here’s a list of all of the segments:

  1. Sounds like you had a great time here in my home state. Love the list of good and bad ideas. Where did you go to ride the ski life?

    • Yes, we love it in your home state. We spent one day in Winter Park where we rode the big lift. We managed to get a full day in riding the Alpine Slides before they had to shut them down. It was a perfect day!

  2. I am yealous – it is 8000 Degrees Fahrenheit in Dallas – a thunderstorm looks quite refreshing right about now 🙂 Enjoy the lovely scenery – there will be none of that when you return.


    • Oh, joy. The weather has been great in CO, so I’m not looking forward to the heat this week. Bleh. Thanks for the warning (or the early bursting of vacation bubble)…LOL. 🙂
