YAY! COLORADO! YAY! SISTERS! YAY! HIKING! YAY! MOUNTAINS! YAY! SUMMER!
A few weeks ago (I'm late in posting) I took a day away from the office to enjoy some of the best things in life - Family and the outdoors.
My sister Patricia, (who guest blogs for us sometimes) took me on a beautiful hike outside of Empire Colorado.
It was a gorgeous day and a gorgeous hike with several mountain streams to cross. We've had record breaking heat this summer here in Denver, and it was so cool in the mountains I had to wear a jacket. It was delicious. Here are some of the gorgeous sights we got to take in.
A babbling mountain stream. I could have sat here listening for hours.
Indian Paintbrush and other wildflowers across the mountainside.
And . . . the view from the top. It was worth my sore quads the next day.
