Ally at Lake Granby
Grand County, Colorado
May 13, 2007
Last weekend Mike and I had a lot of work to do, both for our jobs and around the house. After working all morning on Saturday, we decided that we really needed a day off. We packed up the car with our tent and our dog, and by 2pm, we were on the road for Grand County on a spur of the moment camping trip. I just love the fact that we can take spontaneous trips to some of the most beautiful places in the country.
We went to one of our favorite spots, next to Lake Granby and near Grand Lake, just south of Rocky Mountain National Park. We camped at the edge of winding river and a lake, surrounded by snow-capped mountains. We slept to the sounds of a nearby waterfall. It was just what we needed.
The view from our tent
Shortly after we arrived, a big rainstorm hit. Ally was a little freaked out about sitting in a tent during a storm.
Mike was cool with it, though.
The rain stopped, and we came out of the tent to this sight.
The next morning
We went for a hike in the forest and through the dry lake bed.
Ally was a very mucky puppy by this point.
Ally chose the wettest path to chase a bird.
On the way home on Sunday, we were amused by our new GPS system’s display of the mountain roads!
We wore this poor girl out.
