Visiting the Rockies

Daniel and his parents got the bug this week to get up close and personal with the Colorado Rockies. So Nancy packed sandwich supplies and we headed towards Black Hawk, CO.

It was absolutely beautiful! The mountains were all shades of blue in the distance and covered in changing fall leaves. Our ears popped as we went up and down the twisting mountain roads, taking pictures of the gorgeous scenery. Wayne particularly liked all the little mining areas we passed.

The girls enjoyed a walk collecting colorful leaves and exploring through all the different kinds of trees. We even saw a stooping hawk and buffalo! I took this picture on our way home. Colorado is so pretty in the fall. I think we came in the perfect season despite the rain that comes almost every afternoon.
