It is a beautiful day here and we are headed outside!!
First, I wanted to share a picture with you guys. Last night was my daughter's, Carson, Senior Prom. We hired a photographer to take photos for this special occasion. Rick followed the photographer around and took more candid photos. He got some really funny ones. Anyway, they had dinner in Manitou so that is where the photo shoot was. I think we caused quite a spectacle, even stopping traffic a few times. Oh well, it was a blast and the photos will remind us of that day for a lifetime. Here is one of the pictures Rick took of Carson and her boyfriend Matt.
Since today is so beautiful outside, we are heading back to Manitou. Today, however, it will be to hike The Incline. I have never tried to hike it before and I am a little nervous. I have been told that there is an escape route at the halfway point. Now, you may be wondering why I am nervous about a hike. Well let me explain....The Incline is a 1 mile hike...not so scary right?? WRONG...it is one mile of stairs made from railroad ties that goes straight up!!! The total hike is 3 miles, cuz once you go up, you gotta come down. Luckily there is a trail on the back side of it and you don't have to walk back down the steps. Here is a picture of The Incline...
Okay, now see the people at the top? Well, that isn't the top....you can't see the top from the bottom!!
I am going to try to take some pictures along the way, but I may just have to concentrate on not dying!!
I hope I can still move my legs tomorrow...LOL Wish me luck!!
Have a great day!
