Vacation Chipboard Mini Album

Our Colorado Family Vacation

We all had a great time but we were missing our son Ryan and his wife Tiffany.  They just had a baby girl and were unable to join us on this trip.


At last we landed in Colorado, rented two SUV'S and our first stop was the Continental Divide!  It was so beautiful and we all quickly put on our jackets for it was getting alot cooler.  This photo is some of our children!

We went to the Royal Gorge and it was completely spectacular!!  It was also a very hot day so we were moving rather slowly.  The bridge was so gorgeous and the views were amazing.  We were there nearly all day.  We did take a train down to the river below and watched rafters go by.  We also found a great little spot for a picnic!

This is Winter Park where we stayed.  It was so beautiful there! At the park there were so many gorgeous flowers blooming and so many things for us to do.  We played miniature golf, road down a slope on their sleds, etc.  The photo on the right we took a ski lift to the top where there was a beautiful log resort at the top where you can eat, etc.  The other photo is the view below which is spectacular!

The Rocky Mountains are so beautiful to see!  This was my most favorite part of the trip.  Every where you looked you saw something so amazing!  I now know why John Denver wrote the song Rocky Mountain High!

Here are more photos of us at The Rocky Mountains.  While we were at the top we saw a lot of elk.

We went to the Garden of the Gods.  There are so many unusual and large rock formation to see!

Aaah!  Pikes Peak!  This was a wonderful trip to the top.  It was cloudy that day and a bit cool but we boarded the train to ride to the top.  The higher we got the colder it became.

This is our trip to The Seven Falls. It was a beautiful adventure for us all.

Well, here we are at the end of our trip!  We all had a great time but we were all very tired and was waiting to board our flight back home.  The photo on the left is my grandson Logan at the top of Pikes Peak!
