ADVENTURES

Rocky Mountain Adventure

We drove the party van 10 hours from Jackson to Denver so that Sam, Olivia, Aunt Jen, Barb, and Grandmommie could spend a few days exploring where Logan and I have been living for the past year. 

Monday we spent in Rocky Mountain National Park - we explored Bear Lake, went shopping in Estes Park (where Grandma got her Sierra Mist!) and drove Trail Ridge.

Grandmommie at Bear Lake!

This elk antler was almost as tall as Grandmommie!

I have such a love affair with alpine wildflowers. 

Rocky Mountain did not fail to disappoint, we saw elk and big horn sheep and the mountains put on quite a show. I was so happy to share one of my favorite places on earth off to my family and see how much they loved it too.

Tuesday and Wednesday we explored Colorado Springs and some places around Denver - the capitol building, Red Rocks, and DU.
