Yesterday, we drove to the top of a 13,000 foot Colorado Rocky. The views were magnificent. We even saw several herds of elk in the valley. There may be a permanent indention of my white-knuckled grip on the door handle of the car, my jaw is still a little sore from me clenching my teeth, and my heart continues to flutter a bit when I think about the steep and narrow ascent on the road to the top of that 13,000 foot mountain. But once we reached the summit, it was worth every moment of slight panic. Charlie is so excited that he got to "walk on top of a snowy mountain!"

Days 1, 2, and 3*

One of the greatest parks I have been to - Fossil Creek Park. Now, this is how a city park should be done.

Charlie, moments before he fell asleep IN his ice cream. I kid you not.

Peace in the car on Tuesday.

A rest stop in Kansas. Now I understand the phrase "wide open spaces."

* The photos are in reverse order, and Iam just too lazy/busy to reorder them.
