Last of the Summer Fun

As Summer is closely at its end, my family decided to do have one last summer outing, which took place this past Saturday. My Mom wanted all of us to hike up to Timp Caves and take the tour through the caves. It is about a 45 minute tour and was a lot of fun. Sadly Justin and Kamie couldn't make it, Justin has been out of town for work for over a week. We had a really good time laughing and joking all the way up and the caves were pretty cool. Mom and Dad were excellent troopers and kept great pace going up and coming down. The total hike is 3 miles. We are planning to do it again next summer if anyone wants to join!

Here we are as we start up the trail and I straped Adie to me with my backpack straps since we forgot her backpack.

Inside the caves. This one is known as the "heart of Timp Caves" because this stalactite is in the shape of a heart

Jonathan, Adie and Me in "The Big Room." We can actually stand up in this room, all the rest were a bit crowded

And we all made it through the caves alive and without any injuries. It was a really fun and neat experience. After we hiked down the mountain, we found a nice shaded table and had a picnic. It was a great way to spend a Saturday. Thanks Mom and Blaine for planning it!

That is a fun hike!

It looks like is was nothing like the "hike from Hell" as your father refers to it. Oh that brings back memories.
