We returned home late Monday night (technically, Tuesday morning, since we rolled in a little after midnight) from a 4-day vacation in the Rocky Mountains. People, Colorado is beautiful. I saw just a little bit of this...
...and a lot of this!
My husband and his father and I hiked up Pikes Peak on Saturday. It took us ten hours from the time we set off at 6:30 in the morning to the time we got back to the bottom a little after 4:00 in the afternoon, at which point my feet ached so badly I wanted to cry. It was worth it, though. I would definitely do it again.
