Getting Lost in Nederland, CO

Looking across Lost Lake

I spent three days in Nederland, CO last week with my keiki, and it was so much fun! Talk about a quiet, busy and oh so colorful, mountain town!

One of the first places we went to was The Carousel of Happiness (http://www.carouselofhappiness.org/), where $1 gets you a ride filled with smiles and giggles! We took three spins and then this mama went from happy to queasy; but my lil one could have kept going!

Wanna ride?

After the carousel we went to the Nederland Park, where the fun continued!

Life is not good…it’s GREAT!!

Nothing but smiles!

We stopped by Blue Owl Books for a few tasty Chai’s and a look at books: http://blueowlbooks.com/. It was a cozy cafe and everyone was raving about the pork sandwich, which happened to sell out by early afternoon!

Later in the afternoon, we hiked up to Lost Lake. It was a beautiful day and the hike was certainly filled with it’s own share of natural beauty.

We had such a great time, and Nederland was certainly a charming place to be!
