It has cooled off significantly since my post about the dog days of summer. It almost feels like our trip to Colorado a few weeks ago....the only thing missing is the mountains. We had a blast on our vacation. We got to stay with/see some wonderful friends who we miss so much. Obviously from this photo you can see it was great to laugh with old friends, and we had quite a feast that night!
We stayed with our friends for a few nights before heading into the mountains to camp. While with them we all went on a nice little hike, minus our friend Mandy who drove to pick up her mom and niece for a weekend visit. It was a nice trail, although the higher altitude tried to hold us back.
rafting company located in Fort Collins, and I highly recommend them for first timers. I'm the one on the left in front of the guide, Lee would be the one in the front, covered up to his neck by a rapid. :)
Golden Gate Canyon State Park. It was BEAUTIFUL and PEACEFUL in the park, so peaceful we had no cell phone reception.
