TIMP

 I was invited to complete a year goal of hiking Timp with Jo Jo & some of her friends. We took off round 5 a.m. from the trailhead and made our way up the amazing trail. The flowers were blooming, the mtn. goats were present, and the girls had so much fun!!

 Still plenty of glacier ice was on the trail. I wish we all had those sweet poles
 So glad CAMJAM came along, she may be petite, but man she showed no signs of slowing down on the steep parts

 Top of the world lookin down on creation!
OK sliding down the glacier...usually a great fun activity right? Well when there's a tremendous snow year and there are no signs of previous sliders....maybe not such a great idea. I tested it out-couldn't even scream, but made it down zippy fast and stopped in time to yell....it's too dangerous, GO AROUND! Did Jo and Camie heed? No way they want the highroad or no road. Down they came!

We look pretty good escaping death by only having little bruised bums!
