Hiking Views

_MG_1088.jpgThe weather on our hike could not have been more beautiful. 
Aspen trees were everywhere.

_MG_1105.jpgFlowers are always hit and miss in higher elevation.


_MG_1125.jpgThese bees were busy and didn't have to time to pose for a photo.

_MG_1138.jpgLast summer there was a fire in Rocky Mountain National Park. It makes me wonder if these trees were in the fire.


_MG_1169.jpgCan you spot the snake out there?
_MG_1173.jpgThis huge tree was completely uprooted and still in one piece.
_MG_1154.jpgYou don't realize how big that tree really was until you stick two little boys right next to the roots. More views to come. Sorry if you're tired of them. You'll just have to skip over those posts.

Jan, will you start coming with me on all our Smoky Mountain hikes so when I'm old and frail I'll actually have some good documentation? Okay? Okay.

Seriously, your pictures are gorgeous. I know I say that all the time, but I'm constantly in awe.
