After the car ride up to the Continental Divide, we took a hike to the top...and I use the term "we" very loosely here!
Eventually my fear of heights won over and I told the rest to go on as I was going to take some pictures of some wild flowers that I spotted...good excuse I thought!
The weather at Loveland pass was a chilly 4o degrees when we got out of the car (I was not dressed warm enough). While we were there a weather system moved in with rain & wet snow.
I kept an eye on my family as they continued to hike on up to the top.
I noticed son Matthew spotted a patch of remaining snow. I knew exactly what he was up to....lets throw a snowball at Mom!
Don't ever under estimate the zoom on your mothers camera!
I witnessed the whole scenario and got pictures as evidence...
Once he realized I was no longer taking pictures of flowers & new exactly what he was up to, it was onto plan B...let's nail dad with a wet snowball!
Let the snowball fight begin!
The guys did finish their 80 mile alpine bike ride without any mishaps or cardiac arrests. It took them around 8 hours to complete the ride & now I can check this off my "worry list", as my darling husband would say!
have a good week,
