One of my favorite parts about moving into a new places is exploring a new area. The part of Thornton we are actually in is pretty empty, mostly houses and empty fields, but tucked away really close are cool areas. I was so excited to find the trail head to a bike route that can take me all the way into Denver and even to Golden if I was SUPER ambitious! I love riding my bike places, it makes you feel so accomplished....although arriving sweaty and sticky is a major down point haha. The first two photos are from a little hidden park Josh and I found in trying to get to the Platte river.
This next photo I took on the bike ride to find the trail head. It was soo pretty out there, but man were there A LOT of bugs. I'm seriously not exaggerating here I mean like if you leave your mouth open you'll eat a good 10 bugs ever second. Bleh haha.
