Sentinel Pass med vores familie

This summer, like all, it seems, is filled with events and occasions and trips. One of these, which we were really looking forward to, was the visit from my family from Denmark, and the hiking trip that we took with them. It was really neat to be able to share our beautiful mountains with them and to get to know them better--seeing as we're going to visit them again in October!

I should say that these pictures are not straight off the camera--Brent has done some post-processing to make them look like this.
Moraine Lake in the morning (before most of the tourists)

Signage: no groups smaller than four to protect against bears...not that bears would come anywhere near all these people

Our route up the pass

Snow! In July! An unexpected surprise

Our lovely Rocky Mountain scenery

Lovely meadows above the larch trees

Alpine Buttercups

Eating lunch at the pass

There's nothing quite like a nap at the top

We've not had much experience hiking with kids; but my cousin Eskil was so much fun. Lots of energy and funny antics. When I grow up I want to be just like him. ;)
