A Day in Rocky Mountain National Park

Today, my little family and I escaped up to Rocky Mountain National Park in search of both cooler weather and some good hiking. I’ve always loved trips to the mountains, they are “special” to me, in that you can clear your head of everything in the world below and just be in nature. There’s no better feeling than that.

After the Ute Trail, we made our way to Hidden Valley

And a dandelion head were just a few of the beautiful parts of nature that made Hidden Valley fun!

 

After Hidden Valley, we made a stop at the race car track in Estes, and had a little fun there before heading down the mountain. I’m constantly reminded of how lucky I am to have a great little family. Today, was one of those amazing days where life was more than good, it was great, because we were together laughing, talking and loving one another.
