We were in Colorado Springs until Thursday and then had to fly to Calgary on Saturday. It didn’t make any sense to me to fly back to Baton Rouge and then fly to Calgary, so we had a layover. We rented a car and drove to Keystone to spend two days with our friends. It doesn’t hurt that they have a washer and dryer, either.
We have been friends with Jim and Cindy for many years, and we stay in their place each summer when we come to Colorado for vacation. Sometimes fate intervenes and allows us to be up here when they are. We take advantage of that whenever we can.
Two days isn’t a lot of time for sightseeing, but that is the advantage of coming to a place we already know. We were able to jam everything that we wanted to do into these two days, especially since the weather was cooperative. We rode bikes, we hiked, but mostly we spent time with great friends that we just don’t get to see enough of since we moved away from Katy.
Our trip back to Keystone for vacation in a couple of weeks will be more complete because we got to see Jim and Cindy now.
I always say there is nothing better than being in a place you love with people you love. This layover was living proof of that.
