The Beauty of the Colorado Mountains

posted in: Time in the U.S. | 1

One of my highlights of my time in the U.S. so far was spending time in Colorado.  I got to attend a conference, and spend time with my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew.  We had fun hiking, eating (especially Levi), photographing, and playing.

He is at a really fun age, exploring the world!

Watch out world!
