Teaberry Travels

August 7, 2017

Travels... adventure... explorations...aren't those just beautiful words? Packed with the unknown and so many wonderful things to discover! 

    August 3rd the Miller family (Lavern, Rachel, Joshua, Isaiah, Jared & Sara) packed our bags 💼🎒 and headed west! (Colorado,to be specific) Colorado has been a family favorite and never seems to grow old for us! Our vacation started with a 19.5 hour drive to Colorado! We were stiff and weary ,but the first view of those gorgeous mountains made it all worth it!  ⛰️

    The rest of our trip included a 6 hour hike down Pike's Peak (13 Miles which resulted in many embarrassingly sore legs in the days to follow!) A quick, rainy drive through Garden of the Gods, Mt. Evans, Rocky Mountain National Park and other great sights! We were able to see wildlife, 🦌, beautiful lakes and the Inspiration Point that inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write "America the Beautiful" (I can understand now what brought such poetic words to her heart.) 🌲🏔️ Swimming pools were evening highlights and a the hot tubs were glorious on sore muscles!

      As we viewed the rugged,wild mountains of Colorado I was continuously reminded of the song that expressed my heart so well. One line in particular. 🎶"How can I say there is no God  when all around creation calls..."🎶 God's handiwork is so very evident all around us and yet, sometimes, we need a change of scenery to remind us of that...🏔️ 

   We were sad to say goodbye to Colorado,but we all yearn for the familiar comfort of our own beds! 😊
