Vacation recap!

I'm baaaack.
I wanted to share a few pictures and stories from my vacation this fall. I've been thinking about exploring the world of digital photography for a while, but I'm a pretty careful consumer, so it took some prompting from Russ while we were in Colorado Springs for me to actually purchase a camera. I couldn't be happier that I took the leap, because it was just in time for our trip to Estes Park, Colorado with his family, then on through the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone on the way up to Washington to see my family!

The week we spent in Estes Park meant lots of time spent in Rocky Mountain National Park. We did our first summit hike; to the top of Mount Ida (elevation 12,880 feet)! From there, we camped in Grand Teton National Park one night and hiked a little, then saw a lot of the south half of Yellowstone the next day before camping for the night and leaving the next morning! Needless to say, we need to go back. Then on to Washington for seafood, huckleberries, hikes, and card games with my family, plus a trip to Seattle to see Russ's college friends. :) Enjoy the barrage of photos! It was a fabulous, amazing vacation.
