We just got back from a vacation to Grand Lake, Colorado. It was beautiful there. We went with my parents and my brothers and their families. We got to enjoy some hikes through Rocky Mountain National Park, and driving through the park, as well as a local event that was a lot of fun.

The only downside was that my 8 year old was sick the whole time and he was miserable when his meds started to wear off. He was able to enjoy himself some, but I don’t know why my kids always get sick on vacation. Also, the ten hour drive wasn’t the most fun.

Overall it was a great trip though. I’d like to go to some more good hiking spots, what are some of your favorite places to hike?

Here are your flakes.
