Garden of the Gods

Garden of the Gods is a beautiful (and free!) city park, right in Colorado Springs.
Gorgeous rocks just jut up from nowhere, right in town. 
Kissing Camels. :) 
Yes, he's carrying a gnome through the park! 
Looks like it's storming on top of Pike's Peak. 
The visitor center has pet dinosaurs! :) 
So cool. 
Lots of climbers and lots of routes here. 
Balanced Rock, right beside the road. 
Ryan unbalanced it of course!

Our 19th Anniversary

After lunch at the Haunted Hamburger, we showed the Johnsons one of our favorite spots in Sedona. After a very long "truck hike" we made it to the top and took some fun pictures. Love this view!
While we were planning some nice, romantic pics for our anniversary, we had more fun doing these. :) 

Haunted Hamburger, Jerome AZ

For our 19th(!!) anniversary, we went to lunch at the Haunted Hamburger in Jerome with the Johnsons. Definitely a fun restaurant with lots of spooky stories and decorations too. We loved the bookcase on the ceiling! 
These guys have been grilling for a long time! 
Jerome has many fascinating stories and is a mining town built right into the side of a mountain. They just built straight up from the road. A storm rolled in on us, making it even more eerie than usual!

Cathedral Rock, Sedona

Another must-do for us every time we get near Sedona is Cathedral Rock. Allen mind works like "Hey, that looks really hard to climb. Let's go!" :/ But the views at the top do make it worth it. It was fun to share this climb with the Johnsons this time!
Matt wanted to be first. 
Representing! 
Once again, Allen wanted to take "not the trail" back down. 
On the way home, there was a rattlesnake in the road, so of course we had to check it out, safely of course. That's what roadschoolers do.

Movie night

Movie night with the Johnsons. Just like in a house, but a wee bit cozier. :)

A true oasis in the desert

Some locals highly recommended Fossil Creek Wild and Scenic River to the Johnsons, so we decided to check it out. Always trust the locals, right! Right! This was the strangest oasis right smack dab in the middle of nowhere. Gorgeous falls, crystal clear water, great swimming holes, just a beautiful spot in the desert. There were cliffs, so of course jumping was required. Or flying if you're Allen.
We had to wonder a bit as we were driving on this horrible washboard road for over an hour. You have to be extremely patient, but eventually you get there... and then you have a long hike requiring more patience. :)  
We spotted the Johnsons' truck now and then, staying way back to avoid the dust. 
After a long permit ordeal, (you must have a permit printed before you go!) we finally got to park, then hike, for a long time. But these troopers handled it well as usual! 
We took a refreshing break at this beautiful spot. Look how clear the water is. 
And then we made it to the falls. WOW. Did I mention the clear water?! 
There was a lot of cliff jumping and waterfall sliding... 
You could even swim right behind the falls to a little cave. 
What a fun day and an amazing place! So glad we decided to try something new here in Arizona!
