After visiting Michele's Aunt & Uncle in Indiana, my Aunt & Uncle in eastern Nebraska, my grandmother in Kansas, and my cousin's family in western Nebraska we arrived at Bruce & Michelle's house in Boulder. (Bruce is Michele's cousin, and Michelle is Bruce's wife, confusing huh?) There we packed for our first forray into the wilderness.

The next 2 nights we backpacked in Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) at Lawn Lake. Above is a photo of where Michele and I hung out quite a bit. Our second day at Lawn Lake we day hiked up to "the saddle" (the low point on the ridge line in the above photo) and had lunch with a spectacular view of the Never Summer mountain range. Here is a photo of the view from the saddle. Here's a photo of Lawn Lake and the surrounding valley from part-way up to the saddle. Can you find Michele in this photo?
