colorado in three pictures a day (or so)

Yes. We took over 1400 photos on our 9 day trip to Colorado. That includes the grownup camera (over 1100) and the kids camera (our old point-and-shoot). So this has been a struggle trying to whittle it down for a quick overview here.  A photo book is certainly in the works for this amazing adventure. But in the meantime, here is a glimpse of how we spent our days, in 3 or so photos per day.

Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater
 Dinosaur Ridge, checking out some real dino footprints,
 Train museum in Golden, CO,
 And a visit with my best friend from Kindergarten!
Royal Gorge Bridge and Park (all day)

Cripple Creek Railroad 

 Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine Tour
Drive up Mount Evans was very windy!
 and Father's Day Cookout, observed by equine friends!
Pikes Peak Cog Railway
 ...with the traditional Doughnuts at the top!
 and Garden of the Gods in the afternoon.
Rocky Mountain National Park,
hiking at Lily Lake...

U.S. Olympic Training Center tour
...a visit to the Manitou Cliff Dwellings,
 and to the U.S. Air Force Academy visitor's center and 
their beautiful Chapel.

Whew! We made it. 2 travel days, 7 touring days, and a great vacation! Thanks to Auntie Jen and Uncle Shawn for hosting these four crazy travellers! We had a blast!
