I've been working very hard on getting my new book store ready to open. I knew I could use some time off, especially before the customers (hopefully) start pouring in.
And that means: Vacation Day!
And there is no better way to spend a vacation day than in a Jeep in the mountains! So off I went, headed to Webster Pass and the Continental Divide!
This is one of my favorite Jeep trails. It has EVERYTHING!
It's got plenty of dirt trails, with lots of boulders.
And it's got water! Lots of possibilities for river crossings.
To be honest, I'm a little afraid of the water. I'm not a swimmer or anything. So I am not as brave about boats and things as my friend in New Mexico, Hitty Jubilee. She is VERY brave and went on a boat and everything (you can read about her adventure here - Boating Trip to Tingley Beach). Anyway...
... I may not be willing to get in a boat and go out on open water. But give me a river and my trusty Jeep and I'll cross it!!
This looks a little rough right here, though. I think maybe I'll cross a little further up.
But as much fun as playing in the water is, it isn't the goal.
The goal is the summit. And I'll tell you about THAT next time.
