Bristol Head

On this run, we went NW of Creede. More great views. Lots of rocks all over the road near the top. Just real slow going. But a phenomenal view at the top. Had lunch here while checking out the views. Brristol Head clilmbs to 12,713 feet.

On the way back, we stopped for ice cream. Their one scoop looked more like 3 scoops. THey really piled it on. Very tasty.

As Nikki's birthday, we went out to dinner at a place called Chalet Swiss. What a find!! The owner is also the chief. We decided to have just appetizers and then some delicious lobster bisque to share instead of a full dinner. We had mussels in a very good sauce and swiss raclette, which is a melted cheese dish garnished with pearl onions, cornichons(baby pickles) and small potatoes. We also had Escargots Vaudois, which is served in the traditional escargot dish with a escargot in each of the six spaces in the dish. It was in a home made herb butter, which included curry. We mopped up every bit of sauce with our bread. Just wonderful. They also have fondue, which one of the girls next to us who ordered it gave us a bite. Wish we had time to go back there and have that as well.
