This last Saturday the husby actually had the entire day off so we ceased the moment and took an all day trip to Marble, Colorado. I had been there before a few years ago, but it was the husby's first time. We stopped many times along the beautiful drive to give the little dude a break and got to play at more than one park that day. We stopped in at the Marble Museum to use the restrooms and ended up getting a free tour and learned a ton of cool things about the quarry mine, it's history, and how they work it today. Everett LOVED touching and playing with the smooth marble. We hiked up a beautiful road towards the quarry mine for a good hour before we exhausted ourselves out and headed back home.
Marble is where the famous Crystal Mill is, which I discovered is the most photographed building in Colorado. I, of course, unfortunately, didn't get a picture of it, but I bet if you googled you'd recognize it!
