We went to Colorado this Summer for vacation
with this awesome family
Grandma came with us, too.
We had the absolute best time
spending lots of time in Rocky Mountain National Park
hiking to Nymph Lake
hiking to Emerald Lake
and hiking around
gorgeous Bear Lake.
We spent 6 hours driving UP Trail Ridge Rd
stopping at every turnout
to hike and climb (see a theme here?!).
Looks are deceiving but there are a lot of stairs
we climbed them to get to the top
the highest point in this day trip.
The air was thin
and it was COLD despite the sun
We took a lot of pictures
Sometimes it felt like we were on top of the world
The mommies and daddies even had a chance to have
dinner alone without the kids.
It was glorious
We spent too much money.
we took a *Ghost Tour*
at the infamous Stanley Hotel
made famous by the movie The Shining.
Anthony checking his Ghost Tracker app
yes, he really downloaded the app- ha!!!!
Us pretending to be scared by ghosts
we didn't see any ghosts.
Another evening we just hung out in a local
Estes Park bar and tried not to be too cold.
to Alberta Falls
dangling our feet over the edge
clinging to each other
as the water roared by
We enjoyed the company
And cherished the views of Rocky Mountain National Park
Part 2 of our trip will have to be another day.......
This might be silly to ask now, but have YOU ever been to RMNP?
What was your favorite thing to see/do/experience there?
