Red Rock Mountain (view from the field by the cabin!)

We went to the hills this Thanksgiving. Really.
We decided to get out of Dodge and stayed in a beautiful log cabin at the Red Rock Retreat.
Just what you need when you have a family addicted to technology and a husband who usually works all vacation! :)

We thought we'd be roughing it, but they even had a blender, movie library, marshmallow sticks, books, games, pretty much everything you would want or need.

There were lovely trails. One to a waterfall, one to a fossil hill where the kids found fossils of prehistoric leaves and bones. They hiked to the waterfall while I cooked our turkey dinner.

Field by the cabin, complete with cows!

Another beautiful view

At night you could hear the elk calling. Spooky sound!

It was so peaceful up there we started thinking about how nice it would be to live in a little cabin like that.
My dream job has always been to run a bed and breakfast somewhere...

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Sounds like you had a great time! I could easily live the rest of my days in a cabin tucked away on some mountain. Pure heaven!

Marshmallow sticks? Sticks made out of marshmallows.

The metals sticks that you roast marshmallows or hotdogs on over a fire... Not sure what the technical name is! :)
