Looking across the way to Garden of the Gods.
Important features: 1. It's free. 2. The trails are wide, and although not paved, you can push a jogging stroller on them 3. Free parking 4. Not as busy as Garden of the Gods 5. It's beautiful 6. You can scramble no more than 10 feet from the base of the rock formations, which allows you to get some great shots. You can't scramble at GotG. 7. Very peaceful 8. We saw hikers, bikers, runners, rock climbers. We fell under the category of parents of children obsessed with sticks.
Abs decided she wanted to be in every picture because she wants to be blogged about more. If the girl only knew she gave me enough material for a lifetime.
We tried to get pictures of all three of them, but that wasn't so easy.
Yes, Em was wearing her uggs, not exactly conducive to hiking. Maybe one day she'll listen?
It wouldn't be an adventure without at least one unhappy camper. Upset over.....a stick.
BTW, I have that jacket in every size because it was less than $3, so he better like it!
Em doesn't look so sure about this picture. She insisted that we already had one picture of the two of them touching, that we didn't need a second. Sisterly love.
My two favorite boys.
A view of Pikes Peak from the trail.
We'll definitely be back, and I think I will take Junior there sometime soon on a run so we can test how the jogging stroller works out there. Can't wait to return!
