Colorado Part 4

After our horse rides, on Sunday afternoon we drove to the Continental Divide and hiked up both sides.

The climb


Reaching a great look out point

Uncle Doug and Daddy surveying the mountains

The lovely view from the Continental Divide

The majestic mountains on the other side


...that's better;)




"And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture." Luke 8:6


An awesome panorama

on top a cliff


The hike back down

After we climbed back down one side of the Continental Divide, a few of us climbed the other side

Let's just say the climb, the lack of oxygen, the resting every five steps, was totally worth the view.  This picture wasn't even from the top:)

Here's the stunning view!

(picture credit goes to Dad) once I reached the top...Seriously, people, with not much oxygen and when you have a cold, it's hard to walk for an hour practically climbing straight up.

Stopping for some pictures!

When Dad says, "Everyone Pose!"

Uncle Doug, Aunt Jennifer, Nicole, and Jacob.(sadly Katie wasn't able to come with us)

We had a slightly creepy homecoming welcome:)

  1. Biking, horse-back ridding AND climbing to the Continental Divide. What will you do next, fly to the moon?!
    But climbing so high, with barely any oxygen, and a cold, doesn't sound like to much fun. You brave heart to do so!
    That view is so stunning; and that panorama is amazing.
