Yes, the weather in Boulder has been PERFECT lately. It has just the right amount of warmth to keep your nose running, but it has definitely cooled off enough that you know to throw on a jacket when stepping out. Leaves are changing colors, air is becoming more crisp, and you can almost smell holiday season in the air.
I. LOVE. IT.
What do you do when the weather's perfect? You drag your SO hiking with you.
We went up to NCAR which is like 5 mins away from where we live. I couldn't help myself and took lots of pictures. It was just so breathtaking.
And just when you thought everything is easy-peasy with mother nature, you see an animal foot up in the tree. I mean WTF man! How did it get there?!!
Not gonna lie, Nathan and I stood there for like 15 minutes coming up w/ different scenarios. The most plausible one was a vulture got to it after most of the animal was eaten by some other predator.
After I told my mom the story, I got the whole "This is why you work hard and watch your back, so you don't end up like the deer leg". Yes, mother.
This is what I got from taking a hike on a perfect day. A taste of wondrous mother nature, and a life lesson from my mother.
P.S. Have you ever just look at your makeup/clothes stash and get so frustrated that you want to throw/burn/sell EVERYTHING?! Yes, I'm going through one of those phases right now. Expect an EPIC blog sale coming up. EPIIIIIIIIIIIIIIC.
