We had so much fun watching these huge animals - they were everywhere including our yard and the grocery store! Makes publix back home look a little lame with no elk lying in the parking lot!Em and Jonas came out and joined us on Thursday and we had a few great days with them, they are so fun! We spent Friday in Colorado Springs going up the cog railway to Pikes Peak and then hiking around Garden of the Gods. Here are a few pics from our trip up to Pikes Peak...This was a beautiful lake we saw on the way up to the peak - I never think of lakes being tucked away in the mountain peaks but we saw several. It was surrounded by evergreens - isn't God just beautiful?View from the top with my new super duper zoom lens! These mountains were miles away.
Em, me, and mom on the top - it was VERY cold - but not as windy as it could have been so we got lucky. Don't worry - we all filled up with hot chocolate and donuts for the trip back down the mountain!

Thanks mom and dad for getting an incredible house for us to vacation in this fall. It was a great trip and I'm so thankful I got to visit Colroado with Matt before little girl gets here!
