Took a trip to Cowtown at the beginning of August to see my lil bro get married - figured if i'm gonna drive all the way out there might as well make a trip outta it.

Instead of clanging spoons against glasses to make the lovely couple kiss - they opted for good ol beer pong with a bit of a twist - you pour a shot (they had an assortment of hard booze) you take your beer pong shot - you get it in the couple kiss and you hand that shot to someone in the wedding party - you miss you take the shot
Bride and groom taking shots before their speech

So i went for a nice little bike ride up the Spray river - this is a loop trail that originates at the hotel

Some how i took a wrong turn and ended up on the golf course :dontknow: http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t226/mudgirl_photos/Jeff%20Wed%20-%20Rockies%2009/IMG_3062.jpg

I love older buildings - so much care and detail was put into everything back then - the rest of the pictures are of the hotel

Just an amazing hotel - i'd love to come back in the winter (kinda reminds me of that hotel in the shinning - HERES JOHNY!)

Really nice pics Jenny, the Fairmont is huge. I wonder how easy it would be to get "lost" in there? :)

they have maps at the front desk - but ya it would be real easy to get lost

very neat hotel - everything is so grand
and there are fireplaces everywhere - on my list as a winter trip for sure



Holly - yeah trouble was at the wedding receiption - shes quite the party animal you know (she slept for 4 days after that)
