I’ve been talking up my big trip to Colorado for three years, and now that it’s over I figure it’s worth a few pictures even though it was a bust. If you are thinking of going to Colorado, I recommend you NOT go during the rainiest week in the state’s history. Right now there are over 1,200 people missing, so while the trip was a bust I am very glad we got out early before the rain got really bad. It was bad while we were there, which is why we left early, but our area had some of the lighter rainfalls. The Denver Post has an article about the hard hit areas, and it’s bad. Really bad.
Even though the trip was a bust, I did get to see some amazing scenery, and this is a brief visual tour of the three basins were were in. The first set are from the first basin we were in, between Arapahoe Ridge and Sheep Mountain in the North Park area.
Now I know what you’re thinking: “Where are the elk???” Well, you see as many elk in these pictures as I saw on the trip: zero . Like I said, the trip was a bust. And while there were a few minor injuries, I’m really glad none of us got badly busted up like so many people in Colorado. That place is a mess, and I ask you to join me in praying for the people there. I’ll recover from my disappointment, but their recovery will be much tougher.
