Anniversary Hike, Celebration Hike (Part 2)

We woke up the next morning @ 7:30 a.m. with the sun poking through the tree’s. We were not in a hurry, so we sat around camp and enjoyed the stillness. We also ate a breakfast for champions…Nutella on leftover hot dog buns! That’s a win right there.

We packed up camp & set out on the trail. With all the wildfires this summer the sky’s are quite hazy, however it was still beyond beautiful! Take a look…I think you’ll agree.

Anniversary Hike, Celebration Hike (Part 1)

Mike and I have been married for 4 yrs, today!

Each year as our Anniversary rolls around, we pick a place to explore. This year we decided on Blue Lakes outside of Ridgeway, CO. After church we packed up our car and were on our way, over red mountain. I love the feeling of leaving everything behind and being on the open road with my love. As civilization gives way to pristine mountain views and fresh pine tree’s, my soul begins to revive. Just me & the love of my life. We camped out at the trail head, then headed onto our 9.6mile (RT) hike the next morning.

For it being a car camping wilderness spot, it was not bad at all! We had a babbling brook to our left and a rushing river to the right. Sitting around the fire that night was perfection. You could hear the babbling brook out of one ear, the crackling fire in the middle and the rushing river out the other ear.
