We set off at 8:30 this morning to Green Mountain Falls, CO to hike the trails and to enjoy breakfast at a spot called The Pantry, which has been suggested to me 3 times in the last 5 days! It’s about a 30 minute scenic drive from the city. We decided to start the day with breakfast at The Pantry and then hike off all the carbs. The restaurant is known for its homemade bread, so I ordered the cinnamon raisin french toast and my husband built his own breakfast.
It was delicious! So glad that I ordered the french toast, it was amazing! Their motto is that “If you leave hungry, it’s your fault!” We did not leave hungry, in fact, Chad couldn’t finish the pancake! We decided to sit by the small town pond for a bit and then head off to hike.
And we got to see waterfalls! Yay!
Then we realized that the trail actually crossed the waterfall! There was not a dull moment during this hike. We definitely want to do again, soon!
Loved all the aspen trees!! I could not stop taking pictures of them, but they are really more beautiful in person.
As we were leaving the trails, we saw a huge deer! This guy and his family crossed the road right in front of us! I was too excited to take a picture when we first met up with him, but I snapped this one while he was munching on some grass just off the road.
