Rocky Mountain High Part 2...

After spending Friday hiking and tasting beer, we decided to spend Saturday relaxing.  We ate so much food that day!  We ended up driving up Mt Evans and meeting Rick and Tara for more beer tasting a Rock Bottom Brewery. 

The drive up Mt. Evans was gorgeous!  I did not know that they have a race called Mt. Evans Accent.  Maybe this is something to look at for 2012 or 2013.  You in Tara?

We stopped at Echo Lake and walked around for a bit.

It is hard to get good pictures when it is just the two of us.  I think I have one picture of us together from the entire trip!

It was a beautiful day. 

On Sunday we ended up driving to Estes Park for a little hiking.  We hiked the Glacier Gorge trail.

Ken getting irritated at me for taking pictures
Here it is.  The only good photo I have of the two of us together on this trip. 

If I imagine really hard, my backyard in Kansas looks just like this.  :)

It was a gorgeous hike. 
I was waiting on the top of the rock stairs to take his picture.  The hand on the hip shows frustration.  Frustration with me for two reasons:  1. I ran up the stairs because I thought it would be fun and 2. For taking his picture when he is out of breath.  :) 

"I was expecting the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this"

I think this is what Ken was trying to do the time he fell in California and dislocated his shoulder.  :)

And because no Labor Day Weekend is truly complete with out watching the MDA Telethon:

We are both just thankful that we no longer have to spend our Labor Day Weekend working the darn thing.  :)
