Back from Colorado

Kent and I just got back from spending a week in Estes Park, CO with his family and we had a great time! It was so nice escaping the brutal heat and humidity for a few days. It would take way too long to type out all that we did, so here are lots of pictures...and this is still only a small snapshot of all the stuff we did. Now it's back to reality {and heat}.
Kent and I spent the first night at The Stanley Hotel. This is where Stephen King wrote The Shining. The show Ghost Hunters has been there multiple times and Kent requested that we stay in the room where they found the most activity (Room 401). I was scared. Nothing happened. Well, except the TV turned off when I unplugged the iron...and our video camera scanned through screens we had never seen before....and the computer acted funny. But that's not ghosts, right?
Then on to this amazing house for the rest of the week {thanks to Kent's generous parents}
And here's the deck with hot tub right along the river {note that the hot tub at 100 degrees is cooler than it's been here in Florida}

Baby elk

Mule deer scrounging for food

Feeding baby ducks
Bear Lake

Enjoying the view
We played lots of mini golf

Moraine Park {while horseback riding}

Horseback riding through Rocky Mountain National Park

View at the top of the Aerial Tram {I faced my fear of heights- mainly because I knew I'd get to feed chipmunks at the top}

And here I am...
