Does it look like one of us…me…did not get ANY sleep from fear the tent would cave in under the monsoon storms last night?


You’re too kind.

Zero sleep. Every rumble of thunder, every random crash of water off the rain fly, every snuffle of wild animal (I’m sure it was a bear), every trickle of imaginary water (no water in the tent..but I heard something), all combined to keep me wide awake all night.

Then Stephen wanted to go hiking.

With these views, I couldn’t complain. This is Dream Lake.

After the long hike, we found our favorite pizza place, Poppy’s Pizza in Estes Park.

Long day, great dinner, nothing left but a spiked hot chocolate to keep warm by the campfire. One more day in Rocky Mountain National Park.
