We stopped at one of the overlooks and discovered (or were discovered by) the local chipmunks: 2002 Summer Vacation_0493.JPG (71976 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0501.JPG (99785 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0494.JPG (103234 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0497.JPG (88435 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0499.JPG (83087 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0500.JPG (94327 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0503.JPG (97830 bytes) 

After that, it was further up the mountain with a stop by one of the snow fields: 2002 Summer Vacation_0506.JPG (73193 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0507.JPG (64386 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0508.JPG (89258 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0509.JPG (111897 bytes) 

After making it to the top, Jenne and I (Steve) hiked the trail to the top of a peak overlooking the visitor center: 2002 Summer Vacation_0516.JPG (25154 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0514.JPG (66705 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0511.JPG (98519 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0513.JPG (86579 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0515.JPG (81362 bytes) 

The next day, we headed out back over the mountains again.  This time it was raining 2002 Summer Vacation_0528.JPG (38691 bytes) and we tried stopping at the chipmunk overlook, but the wind was blowing, the mist was falling, and we were getting shocked by our unbrellas!  The static was so high that about every 3-5 seconds, a static discharge would jump from the metal shaft of the umbrella to our hand on the plastic handle!  Needless to say, we quickly got back into the car!  Once we got back to the visitor's center, it was snowing! 2002 Summer Vacation_0526.JPG (82776 bytes) 

On the other side, we saw some wildlife on our way south to Colorado Springs: 2002 Summer Vacation_0529.JPG (57254 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0530.JPG (127375 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0531.JPG (122304 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0532.JPG (133521 bytes) Those are mountain sheep on the hillside above the people2002 Summer Vacation_0533.JPG (53243 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0536.JPG (119267 bytes) 2002 Summer Vacation_0537.JPG (59473 bytes)
