our road trip, 3000 miles and 8 States

We went to stay with friends, Bill and Susan in pagosa Springs, CO, Lisa and Rik in Colorado Springs CO , Stacy and Doug in Montezuma , IO and Jan and max in Oklahoma city, OK

Such a great time, we went toobing, hiking in the Rockies, sky diving, visited 3 State capitols, saw the Oklahoma memorial and enjoyed so many great family meals and conversations.

This was us hiking in the Rockies, we went up Fourmile trail, it follows Fourmile creek and ends at Fourmile waterfall..very spectacular. It starts at an altitude of 8000 feet and ends at 10000 feet. We were all having to stop to catch our breath. the trail is only 4.5 miles long but there and back took us 5 hours just because of the terrain and altitude..in some places it was crazy climbing, and on the Colorado trail description this was a medium..heaven help a difficult!!!
