The weekend before that Allen ran the Dead Sea to Red Sea in a relay team. He said he will never do it again, just like when he ran his first marathon, but I think he might be telling the truth this time.
Back to the holiday - when we arrived, to snow, we spent the weekend with our friends catching up, eating lots and having one or two beverages...
We then went to Utah and explored Arches for 3 days and visited Canyonlands for the first time - an excellent experience with lots of walking that our two lovely children enjoyed.
Arches Day 1
Canyonlands Day 2
Arches Day 3
to get to the Double Arch - the walk was more impressive...
Arches Day 4
The next week was spent in Denver exploring old haunts and catching up with other friends.
It was great to see John and Sherri in their beautiful new home and meet their daughter Claire. We had some lovely meals with Mindy and met up with old neighbours Ken and Kelly. On our last day before heading to Breckenridge we took Jacob and Abi, Shawna, Will and Mallory from our old street to a trampoline centre.
After too much time following Abi around shops we headed up to Breckenridge for 6 days, skiing for 4 of them, walking around the town on our rest day, and tubing one morning.
The trip back was quicker but no less exhausting. However, it was helped by having reclining seats on the flights...
A great trip - thank you to all our Denver friends for looking after us.
