Jones Mountain and Saturday

It’s time I wrap up our Colorado trip. I enjoyed reading y’alls comments on Missouri Mountain.

While the five of us hiked Missouri, Dad and Mom hiked Jones Mountain, which is only 134 feet short of a 14er! Jones is a favorite for us. We accidentally found it one year while hiking to Ptarmigan Lake. We’ve since learned it’s shorter to hike from the other side, but it’s still a tough, hard climb. Especially at the end. It feels straight up since there is no trail! Their hike took about 4 hours. They didn’t stay long on the top because as you can see in the photos there were some clouds building.

Saturday was our final day.  We enjoyed lots of family time, coffee, eating great food, packing up, singing, a family picture (you’ll probably see that at Thanksgiving), and then we girls finished out the evening with some games.

I loved sharing about our time with y’all! Thank you for your enthusiasm!


“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.”
Isaiah 26:3

  3. Thank you for keeping up this blog. It has been an encouragement to me. I enjoy reading about your hiking trips in the Colorado mountains and how you do things as a Christian family. You are all great role models.

  4. Oh, this is the mountain that Mt. James in the Moody book was patterned after!
    By the way, what instrument was Jesse playing in the picture?
