The Beautiful Rockies

For Labor Day, Aaron and I made a trip out to Colorado with some friends. Aaron's grandparents have a cabin in the mountains in Fraser, Colorado that they graciously let us stay at for the long weekend.

The theme of the trip was apparently "Hike til you Drop", which I almost did. We did 4 hikes, including one very long trek to the Devil's Thumb peak. I lagged behind the entire time, and Yader declared that he is "retiring from hiking". Though it was brutal, the view (and the feeling of accomplishment) was well worth it.

All of us at the top:

By the evenings, we were totally beat. So, we spent the rest of the time just relaxing at the cabin, playing games, or out exploring the small towns in the area. We also checked out the Hot Sulfur Springs, they were pretty neat.

All in all, it was a fabulous getaway.
