Good morning from the top o' the rocks!
Our second day at The Boulders, we took a walk to explore a bit, and walked up behind the pool
to discover a thin trail that just went straight up into the heart of totally gigantic boulders leaning up against each other, piled up to make huge hills. It felt like we'd entered a giant's lair!
We had no idea the trails were there and kept climbing up and up.
And the rest of our time there, we just kept coming back. At night, Walk climbed up to catch the blue stars,
and in the morning, the balloons rising over the valley
and those sun warmed rock faces.
Feeling the sun's warmth from the boulders, chatting with the other early risers, is one of our favorite memories of the trip.
Oh that early morning liquid gold over the hills through the chilled air.
Nearly made me want to move to Arizona.
As I keep mentioning, we love, love, loved this place! It was the ideal New Year's destination. So glad for my in-laws bringing us along!
