Kevin and I did a little camping and hiking near the Great Sand Dunes just to get out of town for a bit.  We had prime rib in Salida, Colorado, the night before our hike and then went to one of my favorite breweries on the way home after we hiked in Buena Vista, Colorado.  It was a longer hike, but didn't have much elevation gain.
