Labor Day Weekend

Over Labor Day Weekend, we decided to take a last minute trip to Glenwood Springs, here in Colorado. Because of the last minute part, we had to stay in Rifle which is 25 miles west of Glenwood, but it was fine and it was a great weekend. We got there Saturday evening and hung out in the hotel, and on Sunday morning we went to Adventure Land! It is this awesome amusement park/old west town/cave. Seriously, it was cool. You have to take a gondola to get to the park, and on top of the mountain they have a zip line, alpine slide, bungee jump, gigantic swing, laser tag, 4D movie theater, restaurant plus other attractions such as a limestone cave with a 70 minute guided tour. I was having fun and not taking many pictures while up there, but below are a few:

Here is a picture from the top of the mountain

Mama, Emory & Lily riding the mini-coaster. Not pictured is Emory and daddy riding "North America's Highest in elevation Roller Coaster". It was awesome. Emory was barley tall enough to ride it, and it was intense. At one point, the coaster goes sideways over the edge of a cliff with a 1,000 foot drop you are looking straight down. Emory was white-knuckled the whole time, and when it came to a stop I thought he might cry, but instead he looked at me and said, "Daddy, LET'S DO IT AGAIN!" So we rode it two more times!

the limestone caves were very, very cool. Above is what they called the 'Cave Fairy'

For more of the cave pictures, take a look at my blog,
