Colorado Pictures Part 1

Well hello from Colorado - my most favorite place besides Wisconsin!
I thought I might share some photos from the last couple of days.  Unfortunately, Mr. Gateway here is no cooperating with me and Mr. Blogger decided to also make things more difficult. Anyhoo, here are some pictures, scrambled though they may be. I hope you enjoy! 
Treasure Falls
We went through the Wolf Creek Pass. Talk about amazingness!!!

Some ancient Indian Petroglyphs

At one point on the Wolf Creek Pass we got out and this was my view looking straight down. Lucky for me I do not have a fear of heights. If you fall. A. Long. Way. Down.

I just so amazed at God's incredible creation. Pictures just don't do it justice.

Grandpa's first Starbucks Frappuccino. The first time I had one was when I came to Colorado almost 4 years ago, so it only seemed appropriate that Gramps should have his first one with me. :-)

And my very own White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino with an extra shot of raspberry. I get one of these babies maybe once or twice a year. Definitely a treat!.

The cowboys

Chimney Rock! I just thought this was the coolest thing ever!!! I took a ton of pictures of it, but this was my favorite.

Treasure Falls

And this is another petroglyph that I saw on Monday.

Oh my goodness, I just about fell in love with these chipmunks that were at the falls. They were the friendliest, funnest little guys ever!!!

This guy was literally 2 inches from my knee.  He just sat there, eating his nuts and watching me.

This little girl was just too cute.

Just a random waterfall on the side of the road.

Santa Fe Trail Memorial

More petroglyphs. I call this one "Crabby."


Well there will be more, but that's all for now folks! More adventures soon to come!

Wonderful pictures, Kaila! I'm so glad you're having such a good time. And yes, pictures could never do justice to God's handiwork. xxoo

Oh my goodness, I'm in Colorado too! Funny. =) Wonder how close we are. My family and I are on our way home from driving around the West... and I agree, Colorado is amazingly beautiful. Makes me wish we had mountains back home. ;)

Kendra says that the chipmunks were really, really cute and it was cool to see the writing on the rocks. Jared says he loves the picture of Grandpa standing under the cowboy.

Rebekah! That is way too funny. I had no idea you were going to be in Colorado too. Haha

Mom, you can tell Jared that I really liked the one of Grandpa too!
