What snow? Did it snow just two days earlier? Hard to believe!
  Dick and Deb, Cathedral Lake, June
We traveled to a meeting in Snowmass, Colorado, and took advantage of the opportunity to go for a couple of great hikes in the Maroon Bells - Snowmass Wilderness Area. We enjoyed hiking there just as much as we did 25 years ago, just noticed that the trail was steeper.

Chelsea was joined by 20 family members from near and far. The oldest was Grandma Jane, who was hard to find because the wind never stopped, and the youngest was Aidan, seen in this picture.
