We started our Colorado vacation with the HikeMS this year and it was a great way to begin our week in the mountains! Emily and her family weren't able to join us for the hike this year (insert sad face) but Meredith and some of Cory's family were able to come so we ended up having a large hiking group.
Last year we split into two hiking groups and this year we split into three groups. Meredith, Parker and I did the six mile hike up the mountain. Cory, his sister Sondra, and his niece Jennifer did the two mile hike at the top of the mountain. And Granna and Granstan took the three little girls (Eden, Lily, and Taylor) on the two mile hike at the base of the mountain.

We all enjoyed breakfast at the base of the mountain before setting off on our hikes.

After the hike, they enjoyed playing in a giant sandbox while they waited for the other groups to finish.

After the hike, we rode the gondola up to the top of the mountain for lunch and family pictures.
