I know, I know enough pictures of mountains and hiking. Um newsflash...we live in the Rockies!!! David and I have been wanting to climb a 14er since we've moved here. I realized that there was no way we could bring Grant. (darn it huh?) The Donohues were kind enough to let him wreck, uh I mean play at their house. We needed to leave our place by 5:00 am so we decided to drop him off on Friday night. Is there ever really a good age for boys to sleep at girls' homes? Yeah probably not but we figured 17 months is probably pretty harmless right? Thanks again guys, we own you big!
As the sun was rising it was so beautiful to watch it spilling through parts of the mountains. Every so often we would stop and just take in the scenery (ok maybe just maybe catch our breath) and it was amazing how many mountains were just popping up over other mountains. The hike itself was enjoyable, the wind on the other hand. Good grief! Once we made it to the top we were there for like 5 minutes, took pictures then got the heck out of there.My hat kept blowing off and there were times that the wind was literally blowing me away! I do kind of regret not spending more time up there. It was amazing how far you could see, and all the other mountains surrounding us below. It was fun to accomplish this with David and be able to stop and enjoy nature together (aw....)
I'm SO grateful that we went out before the sun was really shining. It was getting warm and to be honest the view just wasn't as pretty when the hot sun was blaring. We were probably the 6-7th people to reach the top that day and on our way down we counted over 200 people climbing up. Way too late for us to be hiking. Oh and I saw a girl I went to high school with-random.
ADRIAN! I look like Rocky right? Well minus the muscles and fact that I'm a girl, although the way I look in a hat (that is flying away) does resemble a boy. Just saying.
