As things had quickly cooled down in Colorado after weeks in the 90s, we decided that camping near Leadville after Labor Day might not be such a good idea. So we checked availability and found that our favorite cabin for this time of year was open for just two nights during the next several weeks and we decided to take advantage of their "book today, stay tonight" special which gave us 20% of the regular rate. We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening wine next to a campfire along the creek for two days--kind of like a camping trip with a bed and a roof to keep us dry during rain storms. It really couldn't have been more perfect!
