These photos were taken during the cross country trek, when we stopped for two days in Colorado Springs. Tonia, Eric, and family, at Life in Our Zoo, hosted our family in a most warm and welcoming way. It was wonderful catching up with our dear friends and the children appreciated the break from the van. While in the Springs, Wingnut and I took the willing on a little hike through The Garden of the Gods, where I got a chance to try our my new telephoto lens.
The weather was gorgeous and the rock formations are pretty amazing.
Special K, our budding geologist loved the time spent with her daddy, walking hand in hand.
I found this lone fire hydrant in the Garden to be hilariously out of place.
Lil' Lamb wasn't too sure about the baby back pack carrier, but this will be his reality as we hope to get out in the wild more often in the months to come.
