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!
