After returning form Texas, we spent a few days in Breckenridge for the Rocky Mountain Workers' Conference. During that time we don't see my Lutheran Stud much because he's usually sitting in on some sessions and learning all sorts of Lutherany good stuff.
However, there was one morning, when the children went to VBS, we took off and did a little jeeping. Pastor Graff, from New Mexico, lead the way and we followed in our Land Cruiser. It was meant for jeeping you know.
The terrain can get a little narrow and rocky, and tricky to maneuver. Pastor Graff is seasoned in jeeping so, when we thought we were stuck he took over our Land Cruiser, wiggled and rammed it up the hill and we were good to go!
The trail was pretty rocky, but the ride was pretty smooth. The Land Cruiser is the perfect jeeping vehicle. ;)
We reached the summit and it was pretty nice. Last year, it was snowing and the wind was atrocious.
Believe it or not we made it to the Continental Divide. It kind of looks warm doesn't it? Well, it didn't take long and Mandy and I were back in our warm car.
When pastors get together theology always comes up. It doesn't matter how cold it is outside, the conversation can last forever. We thought they were getting cold and we would be heading back down the mountain, but no, we were wrong. These fine men returned to the vehicles just to grab warmer clothes. Then it was back to the discussion. Mandy and I just sat back in our warm vehicle with our heated seats and warmth from the heater.
Finally, back down the hill. It's a beautiful view don't you think? I really have no complaints about living in Colorado.
Beautiful streams and a beautiful view makes the ride relaxing and one doesn't even notice all the bumping around.
