Last week I had the privilege of spending my summer trip in Rocky Mountain National Park with my husband and four close friends. We hiked 24 miles total over the course of the week, climbing to 12,883 feet in our most ambitious hike. I tried stand up paddle board (SUP) for the first time and I am not too proud to admit I was the first to fall off into the cool, glistening water! We kayaked in a calm lake, which took all the shoulder power I could muster as I attempted to steer against the wind. And of course, the trip could not be complete if I didn't climb up on those rocks and pretend they were laid out for me in perfect formation to substitute for a Yoga or Pilates mat.
Enjoy the pictures. Hopefully they inspire you to call a friend to go on a walk or hike. Perhaps you will try that LivingSocial SUP experience, knowing that the water is a soft landing if you fall. Or better yet, just get outside and climb some rocks. Mother Nature's gym. ;-)
