Tram to the Top of the World!

June 28, 2012

On our last day in Salida, we rode trams to the top of 12,000 ft Monarch Peak.  It was very exciting for the kids, because we got to ride in one of these:

Stopped for lunch in Buena Vista on the drive back to Longmont – Isaac did some rock climbing.  He was very proud of himself and announced “I did it!” when he got to the top.  Totally on his own power, as you can see Smile
