Vacation Day - Jeep Trip! Part 2

Okay, so where was I? before all this room box, housing and pixies and stuff happened I was babbling about...

Oh yeah!

When we last left off I was working my way towards the summit of Webster Pass.




That isn't it. That's the shelf road between me and the summit.



This photograph does not even begin to get across how scary a shelf road this is. It's (barely) wide enough for just one, human sized Jeep. Just trust me: Do NOT look down.



But it's okay, 'cause instead of looking down, you can just look out across the valley. Beautiful!



Up the switchback!



Almost there!



Made it to the top!!



And what a view! From up here you can see the whole valley! Breathtaking!



And we saw some other Jeeps making the descent off of Red Cone. That is one steep trail, and it's not even the worst on that mountain. Maybe we'll try that next time.



At the top, we met the most interesting bunch of people with a dune buggy looking thing. Oh, it's no Jeep, but it was pretty cool.



And Mary and Kitty, the two ladies in their party, thought _I_ was pretty cool too!!!



And yeah.

I am.

That was an awesome vacation day. Nice to have a break, especially now that everything here got all busy and hectic again. I missed the other pixies so much, but there are more of them to find. I know they're here, I just have to find them. At least now I have help!

And Fawn is doing great. I'll tell you all about how she's settling in soon.

  5. Hi guys! Finally catching up on comments.

    Hi Plushpussycat! Yeah, I'm really lucky to get to live in Colorado. There's always somewhere interesting to go and something interesting to see. Hopefully I'll be able to get my Jeep up to the high country to see the Aspen changing this year.

    Hey Bama! That shelf road was TERRIFYING. Fun, but scary. We made it, that was the important thing.

    Thanks, Lou Who!

    Randomfish, isn't it just breathtaking! I could've just stayed there forever. Maybe no one would mind a little pixie Summer home up there? Hmm.

    Hey Joanne! Me too. :)

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Later, 'gators!

  7. Hey NyXyz! Thanks! I think everyone needs a Jeep. They're just so fun, and they take you all kinds of places. I think you should talk to your Guardian and get one! :) Good luck!
