A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_3162We were in Keystone for my friend Gabe’s wedding to his college sweetheart Jill. The wedding itself was beautiful and it gave us an excuse to go to one of the hottest destinations in CO. Most of the guests stayed over Saturday night so Gabe’s parents hosted a wagon ride and bbq dinner. We met at the resort and we were bussed to the pickup point near the stables. About a hundred of us hopped on 4 carriages.

IMG_3170The ride was about 30 minutes to the open field and homestead.

IMG_3176You couldn’t have asked for a better location – so picturesque. Make sure to pack some bug spray, those mosquitos are fierce – they were biting people’s faces.

IMG_3186The horses always pull with the same partner. You should have seen the size of these horses!! They were ENORMOUS! They can comfortably pull three times their body weight, so somewhere in the neighborhood of 15,000lbs.

IMG_3197Guests were give cowboy hats and bandanas by the wedding party to get into the mood.

IMG_3211Dinner was served buffet style: garden salad, grilled BBQ chicken, smoked ribs, corn on the cob, Durango beans, corn bread muffins and apple pie a la mode.
