An Autumn Hike….

Since we have Thursday evenings free and open we decided to head up to Rocky Mountain National Park and go for a hike to see the leaves changing. We got there late enough in the afternoon that many people were headed out so we were able to park at the Bear Lake trailhead. We decided…

Horsetooth Rock Hike

On Sunday we decided to hike Horsetooth Rock. It is close to our church and it was going to be part of our family celebration for completing and paying off my med school loan. We packed our lunches to eat in the car on the way to the trail head and a change of clothes…

Thursday Evening Hike

On another recent Thursday we packed up in the late afternoon and headed up the mountain to hike. We went to Ouzel Falls trail and while we didn’t make it all the way to the falls, the trail is full of other water falls and it was just a great evening to get out and…

Backpacking 2019

Last week we went on a 4 day 3 night backpacking trip and I think it was one of the highlights of our summer. In true fashion for our backpacking trips we had some rain, but all in all we had a great time. We went backpacking down in south/central Colorado and backpacked in a…

Leighton is 10!

However we decided to make the week that the littles didn’t have preschool and the bigs didn’t have their Wednesday enrichment a little lighter and…

Hiking On The Yurt Trip….

It kind of amazes me how the kids woke up super exicted to go hiking every morning at the yurt and then we got oh all of about 10 feet on a hike and suddenly everyone was tired/hungry/etc etc…. Not quite sure how that works. Actually though we had a great time hiking, even if…

Family Hike….

So this is a little out of order but it’s because we spent last weekend at Korea Heritage Adoption camp and many of my photos from that are on my camera which I haven’t downloaded yet, so as a result I’m jumping ahead to our after camp hike and the photos I have of that…
