mr. pickle's first big adventure: colorado

mr. pickle came into existence a few weeks ago thanks to a stuffies workshop at blue house ann arbor. he was quite a lucky fella, as just a few days later he was on a plane to spend a week in colorado! he didn't get too wild, survived being handled by children, and he had a great time!

a visit to the boulder farmer's market, which totally rocked

alluvial fan @ rocky mountain national park

driving through the rocky mountains

even mr. pickle likes to wake up to fresh roos roast in the morning!

cave of the winds

at the top of pike's peak! this was his favorite.

garden of the gods

i enjoyed this pickle. but mr. pickle gave me a funny look as i ate it.

boulder creek rock stacks

no trip is complete without a visit to the local library!

a yodelling relative! he found this less offensive than the pickle band-aids he saw at the same store. mr. pickle has since signed up for yodelling lessons in town.

he enjoyed a kinda blue beer at boulder beer.

enjoying some sun time at a private beach outside boulder.

ah, a heavenly boulder-made kombucha on pearl st.

overall it was a fantastic time, and i was glad i brought him along for the ride. since we got back he's been bugging me about going on another adventure. i may be calling on your help soon to fulfill this travel bug he caught.

Thanks, Nicole. He's quite the cute charmer. Next time you're going on a trip he may have to jump in your suitcase. ;)
