Avalanch Ranch Weekend...

We had a wonderful weekend in the heart of Redstone, Colorado with our dear friends the Clawsons. We stayed in a cabin nestled in a forest surrounded by farm animals, a pond the kids spent all day in (and where Ashley caught her first fish), beautiful mountains, a gigantic tree house and antique barns! It was so much fun and hip hip horray...there was no cell phone service! (Sorry Jas-)
Here are a few of my favorite pictures followed by a slide show of our little getaway!

The great tree house...

We stopped at Independence Pass on the way up to the cabin and it was snowing!
The elevation was 12,095!

We had so much fun taking in all the beauty around us!

Jason and the kids got to go on a jeep ride in the mountains-
It was fun but they got drenched by the rain!

What a fabulous vacation spot! Love all the pics. It looks like a place I'd like to vacation sometime with the whole family. Glad you really got away from it all!! (cell phones, etc.)
