Summer Vacation

It's been a busy month and a half with end of year stuff including MRP (Medium Range Planning) and writing annual performance reviews for the folks on my team. Fortunately, Sun shuts down for the week of the 4th and I was able to squeeze in some downtime in beautiful Colorado. I spent a lot of time with the family and old friends as well as time at the lake and hiking. Here's a snapshot from the top of Calypso Cascades in the Wild Basin portion of Rocky Mountain National Park. It's not a great shot (I'm a hiker not a photographer) but I thought the dandelion on the rock was cool.



Here's a shot of me and my crew at the bottom of the falls:



and here's Jules with her oldest brother Johnathan just before she woke up from her nap in the pack. I've learned after several years of hiking with little ones on my back that you can always tell when they fall asleep, they get about 10 lbs heavier:



Wild Basin and Indian Peaks are a great part of the park to visit because the hikes are fantastic and less travelled than other more popular parts of the park. I spent 8 years living within 30 minutes of the park and have hiked hundreds of times there, but it never gets old.

Here's a shot of sunrise on the drive up just south of Trinidad Colorado (a fantastic little city to visit)



There's no real point to this post other than to play with the editor to see if I could insert pics and make an update after a month away.

Whatever you thought, you are a wonderful photographer. I just got your flower picture from the blog. Thanks a lot!!!
