Ally, Mike, and me
Turquoise Lake, Colorado
July 30, 2008
Wednesday was our third anniversary, so Mike and I decided to take a couple days off and go camping to celebrate. We headed up to an old mining town called Leadville, which is south of Vail and east of Aspen. Outside of Leadville is lovely Turquoise Lake, where we camped near a stream on the west side of the lake. We spent our anniversary hiking along the lake and then roasting marshmallows under a clear sky filled with stars. The next day we headed to Twin Lakes, where Ally finally learned to swim!
There is a beautiful trail all along the north side of the lake.
We stayed at the May Queen campground next to a really cool big rock wall.
Of course many marshmallows were consumed.
That rock wall reflected the firelight and made for cool photos!
The next day we headed to Twin Lakes, south of Leadville.
Ally has always refused to go in water over her head.
We threw the stick gradually further and further, and finally she started swimming to it! We were such proud doggie parents, and Ally seemed really proud of herself, too. 🙂
