road trip. heck yes. {part 2}

Before the sun had even had the chance to rise, we packed up our things and said adios to Salt Lake.  And onto Wyoming we went.

Poor poor Sam has been cursed with car sickness all his life.  The little fella' is all too familiar with that belly churning feeling and now knows when to ask for a barf bag 'just in case' :(  On particularly winding roads this calls for frequent stops.  So if you ever find yourself driving down a lonely highway and come across this scene:
...just give us a little wave as you pass.  We're a-okay.  Just trying to divert a small disaster in our back seat.

Straight on through Wyoming and into Colorado we went, and after 8 more hours we came across these fine folks:
We hiked, swam, shopped, and caught up.  It was SO good to see them. 

 We also found the Batmobile {while wearing our very own Batman shirt!!  Colorado, your miracles never cease to amaze...}

 Took in some gorgeous views.

 Took a strong stance on skin cancer prevention.

Practiced our smooth moves ;)

Got inked.  Superman style.

Hiked some more.

 Saw a fox!!

Became a fox. and a bear. and a moose.

 Introduced the Colorado wild to Spidey.

Walked a mile in Forest Gump's shoes.

 Roasted marshmallows and hotdogs over an open fire, just like the cowboys of old.

  And then, just like that, it was over, and the long trek home began.

Mimi, Papa, Grace and Nick, we love you and miss you!


  1. Beautiful pictures!

    Looks like a great trip.

    Being car sick is the worst. Everyone in a while I get car sick too but I've finally learned how to distract myself. But it is the worst on winding roads.

  2. motion sickness, poor little guy. I remember being sick (flu) on vacation with my family while we were camping across eastern Canada. not fun at all! Looks like he (and your whole family) had a great time though!

  3. Keystone CO is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been! 2005 was the last time I was out there, but I can't wait to go again someday :)
    looks like you had such a nice trip!


Thanks for visiting, I'd love to hear from you!
