Colorado National Monument

Favorite animal sighting:

Finding a snake skin. Not my highlight, but the kids were thrilled.

The ranger was just behind us on the trial and he regaled the kids with a story of a gopher snake that got into the drain of the water fountain at the visitor’s center. An unsuspecting tourist took a drink out of said fountain and got the surprise of their life. I was ready to head back to the car. No thank you very much.


Favorite hike:

Definitely Devil’s Kitchen. The wind was kicking up and a storm was rolling in and we made it back to the car just in time to avoid the worst of the dust the storm was kicking up. Rather, we got blown back  to the car. The views were worth it.
