“Revenue” Mountain

     Alright, alright. We aren’t really sure if it was, in fact, Revenue Mountain that we climbed, but it sure was fun! Just the the getting there made for some great pictures and amazing memories. One of my personal favorites was created during the drive back to Colorado with Bekah. Because we had stopped to smell the sunflowers, my car was left parked on the far side of the interstate. A cop just happened to drive by, become suspicious, and begin questioning. Luckily, I was able to sweet talk myself out of any trouble (okay, there was no trouble, but it just sounds more interesting…). Here are some of the best pictures from the week in the Mountains with Bek and Ang:

 

Such a nice surprise after 8 hours of driving. Some where between Salina and Colby, KS.

Our lovely campsite. Bekah was amazed by how "cold" the mountains get in August. The answer to the chills? Hot tang!!!

It's not as gross as it looks... but it's not that tasty either.

There were several little mines around the area. The water was coppery and had a slightly pungent odor. (Well, it may have been the bear scat found surrounding the area. Leave? No way!)

Another cute little mine. What is left of it, that is.

The view from the (almost) top. We actually never made it due to poor signage/directions, a disgruntled goat, and about 2 hours worth of climbing up the crumbling scree.

We came this far... and then we headed back down the chute of death.

After a great day of hiking, time for some exploring on the front range! Here is quirky, quiet Georgetown, Colorado.
