The not-so-fun part


Quick stop in Leadville before returning to Denver. Highest city in the US. 10,200 feet. I'm breathing hard standing still.

More Turquoise Lake

One last panorama shot with the iPhone. Beautiful place to start the day.

Turquoise Lake

We have discovered mountain lake paradise. Leadville, Colorado at the Baby Doe campground. 10,000 feet elevation. Partly cloudy and 72 degrees. Love. It.

All of us guys doing laundry.

Go figure.

Glenwood Canyon Resort

Not to fear. I'll complete Part 2 of the Emerald Lake hike a bit later. Trying to get caught up with real time.

Arrived at Glenwood Canyon Resort yesterday evening. Kids pumped about whitewater rafting, zipling, and rock wall climbing.

All 3 RV's...

Emerald Lake, Part 1

One more of Logan with Longs Peak in the background.  We woke up to sunshine on Day 2 and things were much more photo-friendly.

Nick and Bryce -- the out-numbered boys of this trip.  They are out to hunt-fish-stab-shoot-club-kill-whittle-or-stab anything they can find.  And Aaron think they are the coolest thing ever.

Longs Peak.  Can't shoot it enough.

Getting ready for the shuttle to the Emerald Lake hike.

And off we go.  The Emerald Lake hike goes past 3 lakes.  3.6 miles roundtrip with a 600 foot climb in elevation.  Doesn't seem so bad until you realize that the base elevation of the hike is 9,500 feet.  Feels like a 36 mile hike!

Nymph Lake.  My favorite to photograph of the 3 lake.

That's Karen in the pink shirt.  Can you spot her?

Mitchell getting the perfect shot.
