Many pictures were taken on this day at Rocky Mountains National Park, here are the top 20 pictures from me:

Shawn conquering the mountain!

Hatsue climbed to the top, too! - 2.3 miles above sea level! She's a trooper!

I made it to the top of Rocky Mountains National Park!!

The hike up to the top of the trail - was about a 400-500 foot elevation climb + the higher level air = harder breathing!

Snow warning!

Shelley standing next to the snow

Shelley and my mom pretending to fall over the edge - this makes my dad all flustered because that is when accidents could happen!!!

Shelley trying on an antler!

Water/Melting snow going down the mountain

Beaver Ponds

Sign says it all...

Workers put a rock wall together in the park near a turn-off.
