Hey! Long time no see! Did you know I’m the queen of blog abandonment?!? My last post was Feb 2017… So, since then we’ve moved from Texas to Colorado, Mike’s left the Army and became a CAD drafter and I work PT at an outdoor gear store. We’ve been in Colorado for about a year and a half and it has been nothing short of amazing! Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about how beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park is in the Fall!!
Mike and I came in from the West side of the park (Grand Lake) and drove through to the East side (Estes Park) on October 3rd. We peeped our way through the park on the meandering Trail Ridge Road (Rt. 34). As we exited the park with our navigation set to Lily Lake, the evening sun began to light up the yellow Aspen leaves—it was gorgeous! I couldn’t stop making comments about how beautiful our surroundings were until I was huffing and puffing my way up to The Fin wall in Jurassic Park. We had a little bit of light left in our day, so we decided to try our hand at one of the popular climbs there called “The Edge of Time”. It was an interesting climb up a uniquely beautiful face in an awe-inspiring little corner of RMNP. We will definitely be returning to bag some other routes!
That’s it for now! I’m going to try to keep my posts short and sweet and maybe, just MAYBE that’ll keep me blogging!
