Our first stop was Palo Duro Canyon. We were thrilled to see this beautiful canyon in Texas! This was our first night camping as a family of 6. Joel has done a lot of camping with the twins but the rest of us, not so much. I was scared, and with good reason--haha! Ollie is a great sleeper in a crib, but nowhere else! Such a bummer part of not co-sleeping.Anyway, we struggled through, and I'm glad. It's a short season, as Jubilee was the same way, and she does just fine now.
Our next stop was Great White Sands National park. Amazing place! This is where the swarms of gnats greeted us, but thankfully they went away at night and didn't bother us while sleeping (half of us slept in the van, the other half in the tent)--whew!
See Jubilee itching? That would be the gnats!
Then it was on to Crested Butte, and the beauty of that place is beyond description!
The Hunts even got to come for a couple of days at the end of our stay--such a treat! On the way backed we camped in New Mexico by a lake--the twins were in mega explorer mode and had a blast finding fish skeletons, bunnies, turkey vultures, frogs, etc:)
It was good to get home, even after the abundance of beauty in Colorado:) All for now, Jen
