Found a couple old pictures and wanted to post them here to document some of my first times hiking. I think it's super awesome that my parents wanted to show us Colorado, and hiking, and everything it had to offer. I'm ever grateful to them for introducing me to a pasttime I enjoy more than anything. Thanks for everything, Mom and Dad!

I just picked a random date, as I'm not sure when these were actually hiked. We had a tradition of going up Flat Top Mountain in Estes Park every year or two, and hiding a quarter up top under a rock. We'd take a picture of the rock and then the next time we'd go back, we'd try to find it again. Not sure how many times we ended up doing that one over the years, but it was really fun getting up there and playing in the snow and trying to find that quarter each time.

We only ended up hiking all the way to the Wild Irishman Mine once. The second time wore us out too much. But the ghost town of Sts John is neat to explore. Another thing my parents turned me on to -- ghost towns and pioneer industry! Very interesting stuff.

No, I've never lived in Colorado. But it is the reason I live in Arizona today. Love the mountains and hiking; just don't really like the snow much. ;) Thanks again, parents. You're the best.

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
