What I did on my fall vacation

I just got back from visiting my cousin and her family in Superior, CO which is a tidy little community just outside of Boulder. I can't even begin to tell you how nice it is to have relatives in high places....

On Sunday we went hiking in the Rocky Mountain National Park. The hike we took was to Alberta Falls. It was a relatively easy hike but very enjoyable and of course the scenery was gorgeous.

On Monday my cousin and I went into Boulder and did a spot of shopping at the Pearl St. Mall, an open air shopping district in the heart of Boulder.

This is the window of a shop called "Paper Doll"

We then met my cousin's husband for lunch at the Boulder Dushanbe Tea House. It was one of the most amazing buildings I've ever been in and I would highly recommend it.

Oh and before I forget, this was the view from my window. Delish!
