Colorado was so fun! We got to see all the varieties of fall colors and enjoy the view of mountains. The kids got to play with their cousins and I met up some of my siblings. Good company and beautiful scenery; can’t go wrong. 🙂
The Hanging Lake trail was gorgeous and I’m slightly sad I couldn’t do the whole hike since I had my babies with me and it was quite challenging. Maroon Bells and Aspen were so peaceful and dazzling in their golden shades. Zapata falls was a fun experience, especially having to walk through the river to get to it (and being a little too late to stop my son from hand-washing his socks in it). Sledding in the sand dunes were a hit with the kids and they had a blast burying their toys, although one lonely dinosaur will be forever lost there. 🙁 We ended the trip with a visit to the US Airforce Academy and got some airplane souvenirs.
It was difficult to leave behind the gorgeous landscapes, peaceful walks, and challenging hikes! *sigh*
