Treasure's First Adventure

I'm turning my blog over to Treasure today. He had his first big adventure with Mom and her friend, Chris. I didn't go because they were in the car for many hours, and I don't like the car very much.  Take it away, Treasure.

Treasure here. I had my first adventure and it was very exciting. I got to go to Rocky Mountain National Park. Here I am seatbelted into the car all ready to go. The bear sitting next to me doesn't really have a name and is always in the car. He's kind of a good luck charm for the car.

 Our first stop was the visitor's center in Idaho Springs. They had this great exhibit about the gold mining history of the area. Mining is very hard and dangerous work.

Here we're back on the road. I was bad and sat on the dash for a little while so I could see the beautiful scenery. Our next stop was in Grand Lake where we ate lunch. The lady in the next picture with me is Mom's friend Chris that found Pumpkin and gave her to Mom.

We had lunch at Grand Lake Brewing Company. Mom and her friend ordered a beer sampler (no, they didn't drink it all). Mom shared her hamburger with me. It was very good!

The day started out nice and warm and sunny. But Colorado has strange weather, and I got to experience it first hand. While we were eating lunch, the sky turned very dark and it started hailing! It got really cold out, too. It was very exciting to watch for a while, but then we just got too cold and went into the indoor seating.

It didn't take long for the sun to come out again, and we continued on our way. Finally - Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). We weren't in the park 30 seconds when we saw a herd of elk. There are lots and lots of elk in the park and they are the easiest animals to see in the park. Well, except for the ground squirrels and chipmunks. (I don't have any pictures of those).

We were driving through the park and saw a lot of people pulled off the road so we decided to see what they were looking at. Well, it was a moose! Now this is amazing because the moose in the park usually hide and don't let themselves be seen. We got a couple pictures of this moose, but they weren't very good because the moose was mostly hidden. We watched her for a while and then continued on. And guess what - we saw another moose! Mom and Chris go to RMNP all the time and never see a moose, and we saw two! As you can see, we got a really good picture of this one.

We took a little walk in Coyote Meadow, but didn't see any coyotes. We did see beautiful flowers. We didn't get to stay long, because the weather changed again. We heard thunder and decided to go back to the car. We drove all the way through the park and over Trail Ridge Road.  We stopped a few times to pictures of pretty places and flowers.  There are more pictures of our adventure here.

You're right about that Mario. They were in the car for about 10 hours! I would not have liked that at all. There will be other adventures closer to home. I'll get to go then. Besides, it was nice for Treasure to have something special that was just his.

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Wow! All the animals in the park are neat, but I'm not so sure about the hail. I don't like hard things that fall from the sky.

Awww, we feel a little sad for the bear with no name. We're gonna name him Barry.

A fine adventure otherwise!
