River (Emeli Sande)

We decided to take a day of downtime on this trip, to recharge the batteries.  If you have a chance to listen to today's song, I suggest doing so...it's really beautiful.  We stopped off at the first hotel we could find, which was in a place called Georgetown.  Everyone was pretty happy to be out of the car, especially since we'd been driving on windy Rocky Mountain roads all day.  

Note :  When you see a windy road sign on an already-twisty road, with a 9% downhill grade....you're in for a wild ride!!!!!

We checked into the cutest little bed and breakfast, called the Hotel Chateau Chamoix.  This place was impeccably run, with the nicest innkeeper!  The breakfast was delicious, the rooms were spacious, and the atmosphere was magnifique!  Hubby and I will definitely be trying to get back there for a quiet weekend....
We went for a walk, just to look around and stretch our legs.  This bridge ran over a rushing river, and we enjoyed its peace for a few minutes.
While wandering around, we found this neat cafe called the Euro Grill.  It's only open in the summer, but it's run by visiting students from the Czech Republic, and the food and atmosphere are fantastic!!  Authentic European cuisine....we sampled a little bit of everything.  Highly recommend!
How can you not love a place that looks as peaceful as this?  The house has a river running right there!  The only thing better would be a glass-bottomed bay window overhanging it....
We stumbled upon this train station in nearby Silver Plume, and will probably be going on a train excursion soon!
