Return to Escape to Green Mountain

It's been a while since my trip to Green Mountain Falls, Colorado with the Book Monkeys, but I finally got access to some pictures.

DAY 1

Our trip mascot, Elizabeth


Here's a first at CoIM: video!



Thrilling, isn't it?

The boat ramp at scenic Optima Lake


DAY 2

If you were able to look to the left, you would see me squeezed in right there; this would be the precursor to the "Where do you think you're going" incident.


In addition to police encounters, our trip to Manitou Springs netted the girls some killer Mardi Gras gear . . .




. . .and some high scores for Rebel Monkey (C.R. being her non-blog-monkey initials)





DAY 3

The next day we headed to The Garden of the Gods



While we were there Rebel Monkey did her best job to hold up the rocks . . .



. . . but eventually had to be helped out by Rose "Atlas Shrugged" Hips






The obligatory "group posing on the scenic outcropping" picture



The obligatory "not quite as scenic close-up version"



The obligatory "okay, everyone, look like a spaz!" shot



If you look closely, you can see the walk-up rock climber



And here's most of us marveling at the rock climber


Although you'll notice that The Mag is off be her lonesome, pining for her own carefree mountain climbing days



I figured that I'd go ahead and wrap this post up with some scenic shots sans Book Monkeys, so that our stunning good looks wouldn't distract you from the scenery.

High entertainment! Love the video. I need to get you the pics and video from Trouble's B-day.

I have also just been offered to buy two front row tickets to Les Mis from my cousin. Wanna go?

Have a Cluckity Cluck Cluck Day!

Front row? Very, very tempting; and probably very, very expensive, huh?

I'll have my people call your people; we can do lunch.

My people say about $65. Lunch sounds good. Just can't do it Friday. I have a manicure schedualed.
