Hi.

Welcome to our blog. We are 4 friends who love travel, wine, trying new restaurants, and stepping out of our comfort zone. Join us as we find adventures in KC and beyond!

Go Fish Yourself

In true UA fashion we packed four days full of adventure in Colorado. Our road trip began Friday after work when we loaded four dogs and six humans and hit the road! Checkout Atlanta Monster if you like gripping true crime podcasts.

We arrived at our happy place, Georgetown, Colorado around 2 am Mountain Time. We got our 2nd wind and celebrated our 9 hour victory with wine!   Saturday morning the pups hit the dog park and never looked back!

We checked out so many breweries and recommend them all! 

Highside Brewery - Swim Beer Pils was yay....Chile Lime Pils was boo

Stein Brewing - Chocolate Milk Stout, Pecan Stout, Hefe

Tommyknocker Brewery & Pub - Maple Brown Ale

Westbound and Down - Porter, Hefe and Mexican Lager, the Mexican Lager was served in a huge cup :-) 

Hideaway Park Brewery - we liked all the beers, especially the Red Ale

Broken Compass Brewing Company - Coconut Porter per usual

Guanella Pass Brewery - Featured a Raspberry Blonde that was a perfect patio pounder, the Wheat and Saison are always our go to as well.

Brian and Jamie met us from Colorado Springs. Sorry no pics of Jamie but Billy and Brian naturally posed for some high quality patio pics.

The trip was planned around hiking and we did manage to get some hikes in. Colorado was hit with snow only a week prior to our trip out which is not common for this time of year. We hiked to Saint Mary’s Glacier which is beautiful. Many were hiking to the top of the glazier and boarding down, so epic.

We took our mountain dogs to the top of  Chief Mountain  which was packed in snow and ice. Aside from not having stable footing for over two hours it was fantastic! The dogs loved the snow and had a blast owning this hike. The views again were amazing.

The snow has also put a little pep in Clear Creek. I don’t remember seeing the creek move as fast as it was this trip. The sound of the creek rushing by is one of my favorite features of Georgetown.

Another first for our group was checking out The Shaggy Sheep for lunch. We had attempted this stop during different trips out but it never happened. We were determined this time around! We all loved the featured wines, cocktails, and beers. The food was delicious and our server had amazingly perfect eye makeup and a shared love of apple empanadas. We passed the time playing Go Fish which was also quite enjoyable.

What’s that you see? More hiking! We couldn’t be confined to the condo so we hit up our Wine Walk toting beers and took advantage of a doggie photo shoot.

New shirt alert! UA is always looking to expand our wardrobe and we did just that with these super soft t-shirts from the soda shop in downtown Georgetown, CO.

We can’t forget the best part of the trip was spent celebrating Leslie’s birthday. We always love hitting the mountains but it was a little more special this trip as we were able to pair Colorado shenanigans with birthday shenanigans. A winning combination!

Cheers to trying new things, laughing until we got side cramps, and making many more memories. Girls Trip + Billy and Bobby and the dogs was a success!
