Hot Springs and Cool Caves

The drive from Boulder to Glenwood Springs was beautiful. The highway winds through the Rockies, passing ski resorts such as Copper Mountain and Vail (these first two pics are from the way home because it was too dark to get decent ones on the way there).

Rockin and Rollin

I just happened to be recording a little video of Rylie playing in (on, under, who knows?!) her activity gym. I noticed that she was getting pretty “rocky” so I kept recording.
