Way Out West and Back
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the Rocky Mountains and the Black Hills 7/8-20. First we had business in Denver (International Christian Retail Show) and then it was on to Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and finally to Custer, South Dakota, Rushmore, etc.
Bear Lake, Rocky Mtn. National Park

Emerald Lake, a mile or two hike further up and further in.

Cameras can't really capture the beauty of this place, but we all tried anyway.

A wild growing Columbine, the Colorado state flower.

On to South Dakota. If you want to go on the spelunking tour of Jewel Cave (we did not), you have to be comfortable squeezing through this sample cave passage (Beth was).

Part II with more pix of Colorado and S.D. (and my sons!) in a later post.
