The first thing we did when we got here... mind you, our things were still in the moving truck, was go to the foothills. OH THE VIEWS. I was in awe!

That same week we couldn't help our self's but go deeper into the Rockies. As we were winding down a mountain we came to the most beautiful view I had ever saw. It was the town of Estes Park! My husband said I looked like a little girl with my mouth open and my eyes shinning. By the time that we got to the bottom of the mountain, into the town, I realized that I didn't take any pictures of the view. How could I, it was so much beauty for me to take in, it was like if I was inside a postcard. As we continued on to the Rockies our first stop was this:
|A river formed by a land slide|
|Then we went higher up, we stopped at a land marker where it stated that the valley and the the mountain was carved out by an enormous glacier.|
Here we go up to the mountain carved by a Glacier to see what we find. Here it is...
We have always went alone to the Rockies, the kids never wanted to go until this past Sunday. My son looked like a kid in a candy store running down the mountain through the snow. He hasn't seen snow in 7 years. I think he was a little excited! What you think?

|Boy, you can't beat me in a snow ball fight!|
|My husband got jealous and had to go down the mountain with Manuel.|
|I think he is happy!|
Even though the Rockies are so beautiful and majestic, seeing this big smile confirms me.... This was a good move!
