Fort Collins, Colorado, USA: We made our way up from Moab through Steamboat Springs, CO and on to Fort Collins where my brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew live. The weather was perfect for a hike up Horsetooth Mountain with the entire family (and their very adept trail dog, Carmella). Elijah (9 years old) & Evalina (6 years old) seem to have been born wearing hiking boots and with endless amounts of energy because even as the adults had to stop to adjust to the altitude (7,225 ft at the peak), those two ran ahead. The view at the top was stunning. Yet another moment of peace & awe we discovered on this beautiful trip.
