We rarely take pics while we're hiking (unless F or Rebecca has the camera!), but here are a few random pics.
Gateway Park, Ft. Collins:
The place was perfect for shooting a fantasy movie. Crystalline lake nestled 'midst the rocky hills and mountains, surrounded by the varied greens of pine and fir, with bounders strewn over the ground like pebbles... very picturesque. If only Z would have stopped screaming - argh, did those hills carry an echo!
Z's pitching a royal tantrum in that picture, but hopefully you can't tell. Dad had his hands full on that hike, let me assure you!
After a good, long hike, we were all exhausted - except for Zita. After being carried for most of the hike, she was just getting started.
McCormick's Creek State Park, in some tiny city in Indiana. I loved that place; no other people around. Just us, the trees, and a million gray squirrels that loved to chitter at us.
