L'il Bro Around Colorado

My L'il Bro and his girlfriend were visiting this past week so we were out and about exploring some of Colorado each day. Locally, we went to the Butterfly Pavilion...


... drank in the beauty of hundreds of butterflies in their tropical climate... 


... and made some new friends... 


 We also went to the mountains and saw that the aspens are changing color already...


... and discovered that the road to the summit of Mt. Evans is already closed for this season, so we had to stop at Summit Lake, 5 miles from the top.


 And, because you've just got to go at least *once* in your life-- we went to Casa Bonita.


What is Casa Bonita, you ask? Why-- it's the Mexican restaurant with a waterfall and cliff diving, of course!


Because really, how can you eat Mexican food and NOT want to be in a faux tropical Acapulco atmosphere, complete with cliff climbing and diving? Exactly.

I know how to show my L'il Bro a good time when he's in town!

OMG I did not know Casa Bonita was a real place! Cartman on Southpark loves it there.
