Auntie Corrine's nature camp

For the fourth of July weekend I packed up the kids and we drove to my friends corrine's house.  I was off on Thursday and I woke at 4 AM with a migraine.... took meds and went back to bed.... woke at 6 and found a crying Ethan who had a fever.... Bummer!  Long story short by the time we were packed and on the road it was noon.  I didn't want to sit on the highway for hours so I decided to drive through Rocky Mountain National Park and take back roads.   It took us 6 hours and Ethan puked from the curvy roads but the beauty was worth it!  The pictures are in backwards order time wise --- just an FYI.

A beautiful lake in Riffle - Travertine makes it look so aqua.  The Lake was huge and gorgeous.  the beach was  really pretty too (not seen in this picture.)

We drove up this canyon where people were rock climbing.... apparently it  is a world famous site.   It was amazing at all the place we stopped to watch the people climbing up so high!

Baby Trout swimming around. 

The boys had a lot of fun feeding the trout at the state fish hatchery. 

There were so many fish and as I did in my child hood.... I loved feeding them. 

Petunia - guide Dog puppy #4 - career changed - joined us for the weekend... it was is great to see her and she totally recognized me!

A very tired Ethan passed out in the Pack and Play. 

The gorgeous view from Corrine's house.
