I fully intended to post these pictures a couple weeks ago, but you know how things can get. So today we're going to do a little rewind to our trip to Colorado for Cory's wedding. We promised the boys we would go hiking, so we ended up on the Colorado National Monument during our 24 hour trip, and here are some pics!
Mom and the kids are ready to go! We hiked from the bottom of the Independence Monument trail. (It doesn't hurt that you don't have to pay the entrance fee to hike from here, either). I haven't been on the trail in over 10 years, and it was neat to see how much I remembered.
Brennan and Ian really liked this striped rock. It's striated sedimentary sandstone (to throw a little alliteration and smart geology talk in).
Brennan and Senea climbing rocks. Brennan said it was slippery and hard to stay still for the picture. They also really liked the jet trail in the sky.
One of the lizards we saw. This one had an intact tail. Brennan was the first one to spot a lizard, and it didn't have a tail, but the picture was fuzzy.
Ian-- King of the Monument.
Senea and daddy. She was a little nervous so she clung to Jason.
Feeling a little more comfortable now.
