{Grays and Torreys...

This weekend I invited myself on a scout trip with Todd and some of the Young Men in our ward. They had been planning to hike a 14er all summer and I figured I would tag along since I've lived in Colorado basically all of my life and I have yet to hike one! What a cool experience! We left the boys with Brent, Ann and Elaina on Friday night and drove up to the trail head just a little west of Denver. We slept under the stars and even though it was only 35 degrees, I was nice and toasty thanks to these bad boys. After years of FREEZING I took the plunge and made the investment. SO worth it! Anyway, we woke up at 5:00 and headed out. The weather was beautiful and even though I ended up hiking by myself nearly all day (Todd had to stay with the boys and try to convince them to keep going) I had a great time.

Here is a picture of the two peaks at about 6 a.m

Todd and I met up on the summit of Grays peak. Check out the views!

You are absolutely amazing! I told Mel that when I grow up I want to be Tagan Hawker. She is so excited to come and live in the springs with you! Take good care of her. Check out my blog, I started posting again! Talk to you later.
