Vacation

John and I went to Glenwood Springs for a vacation this year. We had a blast. We ate at BeauJo's pizza (twice), we had a great motel (where we played volleyball in the pool) and we went to the Glenwood Caverns Amusement park (on top of a Mountain). We got a day pass and went on the rides many times. Here are some pictures.
We rode up on the Tram thing:

Went on the Alpine coaster:
I did flips on the bungee trampoline.

We rode the mechanical bull.

And had a little fun in the wild west.


My favorite was the swing that went over the side of the mt.

Here is what we saw from the swing.



We also went on a Cave Tour.






Other things we did included a simulated wagon ride, a 4D movie (the seats move- you get 3D glasses, you get water and air squirted on you, and it makes you feel like something is underneath your seat. Very cool...until you get motion sickness on a simulated rollercoaster), A 40 foot rock climbing wall (John tried it with no feet once), a maze, laser tag, and more.
Even though it was a very relaxing vacation, both of us are a little sore from an intense day of rides:)
I would highly recommend the park. Traffic is never fun up I-70, but the park day pass is a great value when you consider all the cool stuff you get to do. You can check it out here.

That mountain side swing thing...holy whoa. I would have peed my pants! And I thought ski lifts were scary, that would be a million times worse. You've got guts!
