BC: Good times by Adam, Kristin and Alex
FC: Road Trip to Colorado | ...and Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Montana, and Idaho.
1: In April 2007, we drove to Colorado for Papa Frank's funeral. He died during the winter but his funeral was postponed until spring. We traveled to Arizona and approached Denver from the south due to winter-like weather. However, we left going north towards Montana and then headed west to home.
2: Hoover Dam and the Colorado River
5: Alex was 2 1/2 years old and I was 17 weeks pregnant.
8: Grand Canyon (South Rim)
10: The Colorado River began carving out the Grand Canyon about 17 million years ago.
17: Walking along the canyon rim with Alex made me nervous so I held her hand very tightly. | Due to the high altitude and pregnancy, I did not feel well, so Adam took all these photos. Alex and I took a leisurely walk along the trails.
18: Alex and I waited while Adam took pictures.
19: Alex at the Grand Canyon.
22: Four Corners Monument
24: Four Corners is the only place in the Union where four states meet-Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico.
27: It was a long road trip for a little girl. We tried to make frequent stops so that Alex could get out and play.
28: Garden of the Gods
39: Adam and Alex going for a swim. Notice the band aid on Alex's chin. She hit it on a coffee table at our hotel in Denver and had to get seven stitches.
