Sunday afternoon, we picked up Andrew, headed up the mountain, and set up our camp site - where we stayed for three nights. We stayed at Moraine Park Campground, at site #66. Next time, we'll try site #141.


A little river a little south of the campground:


The next morning, we got up, made breakfast, and headed out for our first hike.

We took the shuttle bus to Bear Lake trailhead, then hiked to Emerald Lake:

After the hike, we went to Starbucks in Estes Park and played a game Rick introduced us to: "Dominion." It was a lot of fun. We played it several times on the trip. After that first hike, Brent and Matthew felt really sick for a couple hours. We think it might have been altitude sickness.
