A Sneak Peak

Thursday, John, Anna, Jesse, Mary, and I did a double 14er. It was an intense day. I can’t wait to share the hike with you, but I’ll leave you with just two pictures for now!

Love,
Sarah

“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee…”
Psalm 63:1

Hiking Above the Treeline

There’s something so awesome about the Continental Divide. The scenery is gorgeous, the trail great, and it’s pretty secluded. To add the icing to the cake, John was able to join us.

The temperatures were chilly, but the scenery gorgeous. We love to hike and talk, sometimes staying in one big group, sometimes separating into two or three smaller ones.

We hiked up to a place we had gone to several years before, but we didn’t stay long due to it being pretty cold and rain clouds were building.

Ellie did excellent on the six-mile hike, and it’s obvious she enjoys the outdoors. The hands-free leash I purchased before we came has been great. You don’t have to hassle with holding a leash in your hands. Here’s the link to it on Amazon (Titus2’s affiliate link).

This is just too great. We got back into cell signal, and people got busy on their phones.

“In God is my salvation and my glory:
the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.”
Psalm 62:7

Colorado Trail

Monday morning we took a hike along the Colorado trail. This was Ellie’s first time hiking and her energy levels were high (and that’s actually normal). Jesse patiently worked with Ellie¬†on her hiking manners, and she caught on fast.

It was a great beginning hike.

Love,
Sarah

with peace: the mountains and the hills shall
break forth before you into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”

The Continental Divide

We hiked today along the Continental Divide, and I can’t wait to share lots of pictures, but I’m going to leave you with this one for now (well, and the featured one).

Enjoying Fellowship

We had the pleasure of staying with friends Saturday evening outside of Denver. It was great to fellowship, and we did plenty of it. Bible time as a big group was wonderful and then we played games and ate ice cream after that.

Sunday we went to church with them and then had a picnic at Daniels Park. It was a picture perfect day!

Then, we drove up to our cabin in the mountains, arriving about dinner time. We had a special birthday dinner for Mary followed with dessert and gifts.
