I have realized two things about the Glen Eyrie: this place is gorgeous and I am definitely at elevation.
I walked up to a picnic area a little ways from my room. I loved these rocks.
The sheer amount of irises in bloom is staggering. And beautiful. And it makes the whole place smell strangely like candy.
There are a lot of peaceful sitting areas like this one scattered over the property.
This is a neat little woven vine sitting area, or something. I almost wanted to crawl in and sit inside.
That is the castle. It is beautiful and even has a ‘moat’ out front. I wish I had a room in the castle. 😦
The back of the castle is set up for dining.
I am going to try to clean up a little bit before I go back to the front desk to pick up my conference registration.
The elevation here is a little over 6000 feet. In comparison, Colby sits at an elevation of 1352 feet. My goal is to get in about a 7 mile run tomorrow, but I will listen to my body and respect the elevation difference. (and pause to take a ton of pictures)
