Hello! How was your weekend?
Yesterday, after waking up from a really terrible night of sleep, I felt a real need to get out of town and into the mountains for a while. I had a rather restless night dreaming about real estate and worrying about where we were going to live in Denver, so thankfully, everyone else agreed to an adventure.
It turned into a really great day. The crisp fall air wasn't too cold and though it was cloudy most of the time, we didn't get rained on! It was our longest family hike yet. We got in a 2-hour hike with nary a whine from Chloe (she walked the whole way) and Elinor was a trooper most of the time. She doesn't love our hiking backpack that much, but frankly neither do we. It was a hand-me-down from my sister and we've used it a lot with both of our kids. However, it might be time to upgrade our hiking equipment.
Chloe was climbing on just about every rock she could find and Elinor munched on Cheetos most of the trip. Snacks are always a good idea!
All the fall colors were amazing! I was surprised to see so many changing leaves already, but I guess it's already freezing up in the Beartooth Mountains.
