My 15-year-old niece was visiting last week. We had a fantastic time camping in one of my favorite campgrounds (No, I'm not telling you where it is. I usually don't camp in campgrounds, but no one goes to this one and I want to keep it that way.). We saw a moose in Rocky Mountain National Park. Emily and I tried to be hip aunties and did a darn good job I'd say.
But I suspect our tour of the Celestial Seasonings plant in Boulder was the highlight of the trip for the niece.
Unfortunately photos were not allowed inside the factory. This is especially unfortunate because everyone was wearing hairnets. But it was fascinating to see how all that tea goes from the huge bags of ingredients from all over the world into these little plastic-wrapped boxes. We even survived The Mint Room.
Of course there is plenty of tea you can take home with you in the shop. I brought a whole basket home and will go back for more.
Right after I take another tour.
And lastly, I love a world that includes Google Sheep View.
...a blog dedicated to finding every sheep on Google Street View.
Thanks to Cheryl from The Recycled Lamb for bringing it to my attention. My life is now complete.
