Glad to be back, though I had a pleasant time in Colorado with Trail Life USA Troop 4:12 this past week. We spent four days backpacking Blanca Peak, the fourth highest peak of the Rocky Mountains and the eighth highest peak in the contiguous United States. We began our accent Sunday, summiting Tuesday; then on Wednesday, we made our decent, thereafter visiting the Great Sand Dunes Nat’l Park and Preserve. On Thursday, we took to whitewater rafting the Arkansas River with Journey Quest - the highlight of our so busy trip. We proceeded then Friday to the Garden of the Gods Nat’l Natural Landmark and United States Air Force Academy.
