After visiting the waterfalls, we decided to visit a river bank full of small pebbles. The river was cold and painful to step in, but that didn’t stop this little girl from playing in the water.
Caves in Colorado are always fun to explore. My brother decided to hike among the cave walls wondering what surprises he could find above. Though he was having a good time, the bats were not too pleased with our presence.
“Wonder what could be up there?”
The cave was a magnificent view! The “spikes” are called Limestone, formed though millions of years, perhaps older than any living being. The beauty of the limestone is truly a sight to see, yet close up it can cause a sensation of terror.
Beautiful but frightening
Taking a hike is a way we can interact with nature. Even though Colorado is cold, the plants and trees still seem to thrive despite the weather. The scenery seems to call us further into the depths of the forest.
The view below shows the city and the mountains. As we stand among them on the platform my cousin starts smiling as if enjoying the fact that she is upon the city. Who says little ones can’t be on top of the world?
As the adventure comes to a close, a final picture expresses how beautiful the state of Colorado truly is. The amazing scenery below calls out to say goodbye and the mountains begin to shrink as we leave the state.
