hot / really hot

L - screen cap / T - iphone

It's going to be hot hear in Atlanta this weekend, but it's going to be really hot in Athens. And Taylor and I are planning on doing some of her moving this weekend. It's going to be brutal so I sent her a screen capture of the weather forecast. Meanwhile she sent this picstitch image... looks like they're already feeling it. / we're all passed out.

new shoes / old shoes

Taylor and I got the hang of Denver public transportation pretty quickly - riding the bus, the light rail and the Free Mall Ride. The free mall ride was the best - getting us quickly to most of the sections of town we wanted to visit. / my kicks are falling apart

looking up / looking down

Trail Ridge Road - possibly one of the most spectacular drives you will ever take - it is the highest (12,000 ft ) highway in the US, and takes you way above the tree line to see sweeping panoramas of the Rocky Mountain National Park. We went from a temperature of about 72 to 34 in less than an hour driving up to the Alpine Visitor Center. We were disappointed that was as far as we could go given some time restrictions we were on. We had wanted to cross the Continential Divide and reach Grand Lake before heading back but the sun was setting and we had to get back to Denver. / i think it was freaking mom out a bit that i was climbing up here. i have to admit it was a little bit scary, but worth it for the view. right mom?

grand view / in the saddle

Day two. Estes Park, Colorado.
We went on a two hour horseback ride in the Roosevelt National Forest. Climbing from 7,000 ft to 9,000 ft on steep and narrow trails - just the three of us with a guide. The views were amazing and the air was fresh and sweet. There were sore bottoms the next day but it was well worth it. / what a great adventure. it was so much fun to be in the saddle again. paint pony = love.

grounded / balanced

Her new hiking boots gave her a confidence I wasn't always comfortable with - she was always wanting to climb higher. / glad i found some hiking boots in colorado springs. i climbed to amazing views

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
