Hiking in Colorado

During our second day in the mountains, we had lunch in Boulder Aji, a Latin American restaurant. Corey tried the Chiles en Nogada. It consisted of meat picadillo stuffed poblano, walnut sauce and cilantro rice. The rice was a little bland, but the stuffed poblano was quite tasty. I tried the Ensalada Fruita and the Empanadas de Camarones. The Empanadas, stuffed with shrimp, onion, bell pepper and chipotle butter, had a mild but yummy flavor. The salad was made with mizuna (similar to arugula), orange segments, spicy walnuts, red onion and a citrus and pineapple vinaigrette. The greens weren't my favorite, but we enjoyed the meal overall. After our lunch we took a hike up in the beautiful mountains before we drove up to Breckenridge to visit my cousin Reilly.
