2012.05.23 – Engagement Day – North Fork Ranch and Broadmoor, CO

May 23, 2012 // by Heather Gillingham-Harris

Brian asked me to take the day off saying his good friend and guide, Tad Howard (with Colorado Trout Hunters) was going to take us fishing because he had some clients back-out and could fit us in.  Instead, he surprised me with a proposal to marry him!!  Followed by a great weekend at the North Fork Ranch where we fished and rode horses!!  The day started out unassuming with some HUGE fish!  Anyone ever wanting to go to a great ranch with insane fishing…North Fork Ranch is your place!

Before lunch Brian told me, “The fishing is slow so why don’t we take a break and sit on the bridge for a bit?”  Of course I was confused on the “slow fishing” but I always enjoy sitting and talking with Brian so I joined!  Little did I know he would pull out a fly box with flies he would suggest to catch more fish….and it had my engagement ring in it!!  It was a beautifully romantic proposal!!   Later Brian admitted it was a bit dicey to have a ring over rushing water with shaky hands!!  LOL

After a wonderful lunch cooked up by Karen (Karen and Dean are the proprietors at North Fork Ranch), it was off to catch more hogs!

Brian also surprised me with a horse ride…and what ride would be complete with out new cowboy hat and boots, western shirt and belt buckle??!!

We weren’t done….Brian reserved a room at the beautiful Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs!  Weekend couldn’t have been any better!!!  Our life has been full of MANY adventures since the day we met!!!   Life is short….play hard!
