My kids and I did an ink drawing each day in October for Inktober. We filmed the whole process in the YouTube video below. Check it out!
This year we wanted to visit a less popular part of the state. Yampa is my old hunting grounds so I knew the area well. We spent two days in the Flat Tops Wilderness and then took a detour through Steamboat and then toward Silverton/Dillon on the way back. Here are a few photos from the trip:
This classic Steamboat Barn used to be out in the middle of nowhere. Now it's completely surrounded by condos and city buildings. It's very difficult to get a shot of it without newer buildings in the picture:
And a few shots from on the way home. We caught a sunset at Lake Dillon:

Our big vacation this summer wasn't our usual backpack into the Rockies, but a family trip to visit Nathan and Kameryn and the cousins in Pine Haven. We just hung out the first couple days and the kids got to play their Playstation VR, then we went for some fun in Rapid City to a water park and Reptile Gardens. We did do a couple photography outings a couple of evenings. KD and I spent an evening at Devil's Tower to shoot the sunset and some night sky photos. She was super patient waiting for dark to come that night waiting for the milky way to show. Another night we were able to get out to Badlands National Park, which I didn't even know exhisted until we were up there in the hotel and looking at some pamphlets. I'm glad we checked that one out. It was such a hidden gem out in the middle of nowhere!
