Fulford Cave

My dad and I had quite an adventure today. We drove to Sylvan Lake State Park to do some spelunking in Fulford Cave. The hike to the cave is just under a mile and not terribly difficult. However, right as we arrived at the trailhead, a downpour of rain kindly greeted us. And this rain did not let up. Finally, we made it to the enterance, which was a narrow culvert.

The cave is multi-leveled and fairly difficult to navigate. The temperature inside was 40 degrees! The wet clothing didn't help.

The Aspens of Beaver Creek, CO

My parents, Whit, Jack and I walked on a trail through the aspens in Beaver Creek a few days ago. It was awesome. Apart from a few pine and spruce, the aspen was pretty much the only tree to be seen. Thousands of them!

This sign certainly got our attention. However, not a single black bear was spotted. Blast! I have to admit it would have been exciting.

I carved my initials on this dead aspen. Exciting, I know.

I call it "Freedom."

Cutest toddler in the world.

P.S. I just began a new blog that revolves entirely around the world of Tree Sledding. Click here to view.
