I’m here with more photos of our vacation. These are from the 3rd day of vacation. We started every morning by making coffee and drinking it outside while Gray chased chipmunks. We would give him peanuts to give to the chipmunks and as soon as they were in his hand, they went straight to his mouth. The chipmunks never got a peanut from this guy
Daddy taught our son how to stick out his tongue. He said he taught him where his tongue was. I’m pretty sure he taught him because he thought it was funny. And it is. Probably won’t be when he is sticking it out at us to be a butt, but right now we like asking him, “Grayson where’s your tongue?” and getting this face in return.
I went on a hike by myself (Mom was not too happy about that) while Gray was napping and the hubs was getting a little work done. While it was so peaceful to only hear the birds and dragonflies flying around me I was a bit scared that a bear was going to run out of the woods or a snake was going to bite me. I watch too many survival shows. Anyways, I hiked the same trail that we did before but this time it wasn’t raining which was great.
We went into town and walked around after nap. It’s such a cute, quaint little town with ice cream shops about every 10 feet. I remember thinking that the town was so big when I was a child. Yep, my hubs is babywearing. In the words of Paris Hilton, that’s hot.
That evening Graham and I took a ride up to the park on a mission to see some wildlife. I had missed out on the elk sightings and I was determined to see one. The mountains in the evening are gorgeous. It’s crazy how different a place can look once the sun starts setting.
We didn’t see anything until we went “off roading” in our Ford Fusion rental. Then we saw this guy eating away all alone. They have these pull off look out points throughout the park and we found one with a great rock we could climb and watch the sunset. It was breathtaking. I feel like the pictures don’t really do it justice. Maybe if I was a professional photographer I could have captured that feeling for yall. At least when I look at these photos I am able to recall that feeling of awe.
Seeing these photos makes me want to be there right now. It’s so serene.
By the way, I finally did see some elk on the drive out of the park but it was getting dark and all the photos turned out pretty blurry. They are so massive even from a distance!
I’ll be back tomorrow with our last day.
