Here and Gone

Has cousin play ever been as fun as when you have been separated, then see each other again?  Camping was great. We seemed to have found the perfect campground and site for the kids to run around having lots of room to play, and options like playing in the beach or in the water, or playing in the tall grass or little grove of Quaking Aspen trees, or just digging in the dirt and pine needles near the tents.  With a post card view of the lake, and a slight breeze most of the day, it was also a perfect spot for us adults to step out and away from the craziness of our everyday routines.

The big boys found several geocaches and Suzanne and I took a sunset walk a ways down the hiking trail that skirted the lake.

I think my parents would love camping here I’m kind of sad that we had to leave but also overjoyed at the discovery of such a beautiful little lake tucked up in the La Plata mountains at 8,000 feet elevation.

With one last day together we revisited one of our favorite National Monuments Mesa Verde and Four Corners.

So sad to say goodbye, but really, it is just see you later.  It was sooooo good to just hang out for a few days.  We love you guys, thanks for coming!
