Sunday Hike

Sunday. One of my favorite days. Usually because of Football, but when the weather is nice and Football isn't in season, we try to always take Sunday as our day to get out in the sunshine and get away from everything else going on in the world. 

Yesterday morning we packed up a backpack with some food and water, loaded Bentley and Ringo into the car and headed to the mountains. We took a trail that we had been on once before but didn't get very far. We decided to try it again and see if we could actually get to the end of the trail and up to the reservoir that it leads to. 

It was a lot longer of a hike than we expected, but it was absolutely beautiful. 

And we actually didn't get to the reservoir, but we did get to the end of the trail. What we didn't know is that the trail ends and then you have to take another trail to get to the reservoir. We wanted to keep going, but it looked like a storm was moving over the mountains and in the summer in Colorado, the mountains is the last place that you want to be when a thunderstorm rolls over.

We decided to head back down the trail and try to get ahead of the storm. And to be honest I was already pretty tired at this point. By the time we got back to the car I was exhausted. And so were Jeremy and the boys. The storm ended up not even hitting where we were, but better to be safe than sorry.

With our boys. They were exhausted after the long hike too!
It was a long hike. We were out there for around three hours and considering how much of that was uphill, it was an intense workout. No wonder we were so exhausted. But as exhausting as it was, it was beautiful and we are already planning on heading back up another Sunday to try and get to the reservoir. I really want to see it because it sits at the base of a beautiful mountain and all of the pictures I have seen look absolutely gorgeous. Something to look forward to for another day.
