In Part 1: Petra’s Mother (Bozena) and Sister (Hanka) come to experience their first American Thanksgiving, check out our new neighborhood near our house, try some legal marijuana and meet up with some friends at Clancy’s Irish Pub in Wheat Ridge. Then we are off to Colorado Springs, hot Irish coffee at Jack Quinn’s, eat at the famous Golden Bee Restaurant and finally arrive at our final destination in Cascade near Manitou Springs where we find their amazing vintage Penny Arcade.
In Part 2: We end up stranded 13 miles from the nearest major road when our Jeep slides into a ditch on the side of a mountain. With another snowstorm looming down on us and temperatures dropping, we snowshoe to the nearest outpost; a remote Mennonite campground to seek shelter and help. Special thanks to Matt and Michael from Fred’s Towing in Woodland Park, Tom from the Mennonite Campground for letting us use their phone and Eric who tried tirelessly to pull us out of the ditch to no avail.
In Part 3: Our final episode for Hanka and Bozena in America for Thanksgiving as they snowshoe to the top of a mountain, bathe in the natural hot springs of Manitou Springs, celebrate with family and friends and even a bit of bowling!
