Well, it was our 10th wedding anniversary recently, and we boldly decided to take a vacation in the middle of our busy farming season to celebrate! We decided to head home to Colorado and do some hiking with our good friend Art Escobado, who is an avid landscape photographer. Our destination? A 5-day backpacking trip to The Super Mountains – Maroon Bells – near Aspen. We had a fabulous time with lots of hiking, camp cooking and photo-taking. Mr. Smeems even enjoyed it! Of course, he had his nifty backpack to store all his chow in, so he was looking dapper. We hit a snow storm for 2 days, so we mostly built a fire those days, and the other days we hiked around and Art took pictures. Here’s some select gems to chew on. Enjoy!
