TIMP part 2

Still no peak in sight, but the cirque is beautiful.
Brandon just before the last trudge up to Emerald Lake. It's "just over that rise" on the right.

We can finally catch a glimpse of the peak.

The warmest I have ever been at the top of Timp.

One reason Brandon isn't allowed to blog.
Right now he would be saying, "No pads, no helmets... just balls."

At the top of the glacier ready to roll.

Tris followed after me whooping and hollerin just as much as I did.

We both thought it was our funnest ride down the glacier ever.

Brandon sat on his garbage bag, intended to keep his hiney dry. It sent him flying fast enough I could only get a few quick photos. This one is right before he hit the big rock.

This one is right after he hit the big rock.

A wonderful day and beautiful hike. Thanks for going with me, my cute family members.

Timp is one of my happy places, too.

Looks like you guys had a riot. It's good I didn't go, I would have really slowed you all down. uphill hiking is rather difficult for me...I can kick butt going downhill tho...

What a great trip! Makes me home sick!

Cherry Days, Timp- how fun!

Isn't it great the guys don't weld the camera like we do? (we get all the 'good' shots of them :)

You have more hiking skill in your little finger than I do in my whole body. You're amazing.

Awesome pictures, Beth. I'm so glad we decided to do that trail.
