On the next to last day, a group from our family decided to attempt a "fourteener" . . . meaning a 14,000 moutain hike . . . with no training.
They also didn't take enough water for the hike. My husband didn't end up making it to the very top but he got close. He definitely got high enough for some great views!
This is the group:
This is the Alpine Slide. Andrew took Abigail down and she really enjoyed it. Too bad she won't be able to remember!
Here is a group shot of everyone who went up to Peak 8. Not everyone went down the slide.

We took a tour of the Country Boy Mine. It was very interesting to learn how difficult the conditioners were for the miners (and children!) who worked there.
