We're back, and what a trip

Early morning in RMNP, originally uploaded by stoutag.

I don't have time presently to any kind of real trip report yet, but what I can say is that it was a great time, and despite some definite obstacles (everyone coming down with a ferocious cold while visiting family in Keystone, and having record rainfall in August) it was a great time.

We saw a lot of beautiful stuff that we'd never gotten to experience by bike, Rocky Mountain National Park, Trail Ridge Road, Summit County mountain spleandor, the Peak to Peak Highway and Boulder Canyon.  Many places we've known and loved much of our lives, but it was all new getting to tour them by bike and share that experience with our kiddos.

Next year I'm definitely getting a waterproof handlebar bag, so that the SLR is more accessible, as there were simply too many great vistas passed up due to the camera being packed too far away.

What sums it up is this  "Where are we going next year?!?!"
