Day 5: Hiking in the Rockies

by Kate Djupe

A hike with three different end points: The Pool (a waterfall-ish area) for Gust and Kate; Fern Lake for Bear and Paul; Bear Lake via Odessa for Massa.

This is where we split up and the bigger boys went further up and Gusty and I hiked back down. Gusty descended 1.75 miles (at about a mile per hour) before he asked to be carried and promptly fell asleep. He did amazing.

We hit up Colorado Cherry Company on our way back to Boulder. Cherry juice. Yum.

At the end of the day, the boys slept hard.

And while they slept, I cooked homemade paneer and mysost and naan. Paul made saag and rice. We ate very well.
