St. Mary’s Glacier

This weekend we went to a glacier!! Well a semi-permanent ice field but still cool. It was our first time at St. Mary’s. There was barely any snow but enough worth hiking to! Also there were a bunch of little waterfalls and streams from the melting snow. All the foliage was yellow and red, except for the evergreens which never cease to amaze me. I’ve said it a million times but I absolutely loveeee the fall colors in the mountains!! Although fall is a season of dying it makes me really appreciate how alive everything really is and how alive I am. St. Marys glacier was a short but rocky hike to a lake surrounded by peaks (James peak being one of them) then you can hike up to the “glacial field”. It’s near Idaho Springs west of Indian Peaks and James Peaks Wilderness areas. We hiked to the snow field and around the lake. It was so much fun!! I love going to new places. There were sooo many cute dogs, Waldo had so much fun and was so well behaved. His favorite thing is going hiking and seeing other people and sniffing other dogs. To get there we went through Golden and on I-70 but on the way back we went through Central City & Blackhawk and Rollinsville & Nederland for a different route and especially to get our smoky chicken noodles from the barbecue stand. Such a fun weekend with my adventure boys!! We capped the weekend with a trip to Sanitas brewery which has the best chill patio near the train tracks here in Boulder. We both got Bière de Gardes that were so delicious. It’s one of our favorite types of craft beer yet it’s difficult to find so we had to jump on it!! We’re having Tyler’s famous homemade pizza tonight, it’s seriously the best pizza I’ve had hands down and we make everything from scratch!! We love our food processor (seriously the best kitchen appliance ever) and our baking steel. It was a great October weekend! I have been in such a fall mood yet I have not bought one pumpkin flavored item lol. It’s festive and all but it’s seriously getting wayy overkill with all the pumpkin stuff (like seriously every single thing is pumpkin everywhere). We are sooo not ready for the weekend to be over but it’ll be here again before we know it! Now that I’m a full time working adult it feels like the work week is such a grind and everything revolves around the weekend, guess that’s what adult life is like!
