I was in Denver for a grand total of about 24 hours. It was a worthwhile stopover, got to see some old friends from high school (who you might remember from a hike earlier this year, one of whom just moved from Santa Cruz out to Denver.) We had a pre-30th birthday celebration, the first one of our group to turn 30, a scary time in anyone’s life. I baked brownies to celebrate the occasion, and attempted to decorate it with some frosting I bought from the store, only to realize it was actually frosting dye. So…yeah. Fail.
