Rocky Mountain National Park

The Garrigan's new home--- on wheels. We've made a slight upgrade from the Amerigo. If you thought we were crazy before--well, we've decided to make the new camper our home. We're not real sure what that's going to look like, but I think it will be quite the adventure.

Peter is giving Flint a little "peter love" and Flint seemed alittle scared to death. It seems like i'm constantly saying, "Peter, quit licking me!"

Barrett and Luke earned their Jr. Ranger Badges at the Rocky Mtn. National Park. They had to complete a booklet with animals, different spots in the park and they had to watch a movie about the national parks.

One Morning we had a few visitors at our campsite. There are elk everywhere at the park. Peter loved seeing the "baby elk". We also camped next to a retired man, Tom, who was at the park photographing the animals. He showed us the Holmes Comet which apparently hasn't been able to be seen in a long time. And he showed Barrett the milky way and some other stars. He also played the Indian flute. He had 5 or 6 different ones that he played for the boys. They loved hearing them. I think we could stay in the park for a long time.
We are now back near boulder for the weekend and then we will head to Glenwood Springs and then down towards Bryce and Zion.

So, I guess this means you won't be needing to rent our house when you get back. It sounds like you are having so much fun. What a great experience! Marley gets to shove her name into Luke's name tag every Sunday. Maybe I will be able to figure out how to make her one by the time you get back. If you are bored, check out our blog
I will continue to live vicariously through your blog.
