On this foggy start to a Friday morning, I thought I’d share some pictures from some of our hikes this summer. We’ve done much more distance overall this summer in preparation for a long hike in Rocky Mountain National Park to Lion Lakes.
Many hikers cross off fourteeners in hopes of conquering all 53. While the best hiking partner ever, Elaine, and I have summited several, we both agree that the high mountain lakes are so incredibly beautiful and that has been our focus during this hiking season.
We did take a drive up Mt. Evans, a first for me, to see the sheep and goats. But our longest hike so far was up past Finch Lake to Pear Lake and it did not disappoint. Such grandeur for a humble lunch picnic of PBJ, Cheezits, some fruit, and the sense of accomplishment with the reward of a scene that could only have been crafted by the love of beauty.
