Day 3 in Colorado definitely did not dissapoint! Kelly got us tickets for the cog railway to the top of Pike’s Peak – the mountain overlooking Colorado Springs (& the peak we watched fireworks over earlier this year! Although, much colder at that time of year!). It could not have been a more perfect day – again, beautiful weather and great company made for the best of times. And Hannah’s nieces and Aunt joined in, which was great fun for the kids!
Views on the way up were amazing – and anyone who knows Asher well will recognize his obsession with binoculars! He kept on the lookout for wildlife and we did end seeing quite a few marmots, and spotted some long horn sheep in the distance.At the top we enjoyed the fresh homemade donuts and hot chocolate – except Selah (Miss Picky eater) who opted for Cheetos. As we walked around, Selah even noticed she got winded easily, so it was a fun introduction to a bit of altitude for their first time.
Another fun day for all. We’re so thankful for the hospitality of these friends who we count as family.
