Paul and I decided that one things we really wanted to do before leaving Colorado was hike one of the peaks here. We were able to find a family to take Sophia in September at 6:30 in the morning so that we could drive up to Estes Park to go and hike the Twin Sisters. We had a great time and even met up with this hiking group who hikes every Saturday. I thought I was going to die for lack of O2, but I did make it (even all the way to the higher eastern summit, but only because Paul made me do it). I am glad I went all the way up even though I was sure I was going to fall off. I guess I am not an adrenalin seeker!

Mandie huffing and puffing.... we made it past the tree line!
Paul climbed up a bunch of rocks...this older guy on the trail kept calling him bumblebee (I wonder why?)
We made it to the summit... it was a beautiful day!
On our way back down, which was 3 times faster than the way up.
