Second day involved roughly 5.2 miles from Glenn's Lake to Elizabeth Lake. We backtracked to the river crossing. This time doing it barefoot so our boots could dry out throughout the day. My feet were destroyed. Several large blisters on each foot. Luckily my copilot had mole skin and another hiker we met at the river crossing had athletic tape. The hike was fairly easy. Slight elevation gain. We were rewarded with an insanely beautiful waterfall and shortly after arrived at our next camp. Elizabeth Lake was absolutely stunning. The views at Elizabeth Lake are hands down some of the most beautiful natural scenery I've seen in my life. The first photo in this post is at the foot of the lake.
Mt. Ida - 12,792’. Feeling victorious after lugging this 50-pound pack up a mountain. We summited just before 9 AM to avoid the usual afternoon thunderstorms... which meant we had to leave Denver at 3 AM and get a pre-sunrise start. #paranoid 🤷🏽♀️ But sure enough, the rain started coming down moments after we reached the car. #typicalcoloradoweather#nofilter
Humility never loses...you can’t beat us if we’re never comparing ourselves or competing with you💯
Today was productive! We’ve been calling it #familyfriday . After a trip to the chiropractor and a home cooked breakfast, we trekked 3.5 miles passing the Continental Divide Overlook right outside of Boulder! I’ve been telling @ifbbpro_russ_allen lately, I’m in a phase of seclusion! I just want to put my head down and grind, with my family! I love people, but right now I feel more productive and happy with the time I’m spending on myself, Russ and Makenzie Rae. Making sure everyone is healthy, and happy.❤️
We hope everyone has an amazing Friday night!! We’ll just be over here enjoying popcorn and Justice League🍿🎬
