Fall in the Rockies 2012

Amazingly beautiful day for the start of fall!

The kids loved exploring, we wandered all day. ;o)

Claire was so great helping Damian along, they are so adorable when they are not fighting of course....
 Hard to get them to stop moving long enough to pose for a picture....
you can see the haze from the western wildfires

Summit Lake-along the highest road in the Rockies I think!
Is the water COLD???

Big horn sheep everywhere!
Our handsome boys enjoying the view
love love love
