Honeymoon: Part 1

Yes! It actually allowed me to upload some pictures! So, since they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words" I'm going to let them do most of the talking!:) Enjoy!

This was at the very beginning of our trek up to the summit of Pikes Peak. What a climb it was! Switchback roads, sheer drop-offs and magnificent views! Wow!

We actually caught the 'Big Foot' crossing himself! (smile)

We arrived at the summit after nearly 2 hours of driving. It was absolutely incredible! I will never forget it!

Did you know? That America the Beautiful was penned after Kathrine Lee Bates visited the summit of Pikes Peak? I didn't, but once you've been there you can understand why someone would be so inspired!

The views at the summit of Pikes Peak were breathtaking! We serve an awesome Creator!!

I didn't know this about the Rockies, and found it fascinating!

Here we are behind the waterfall at Casa Bonita's

On the opening night of Fireproof, we headed to Denver and ate at Casa Bonita's before the movie. It was such a fun restaurant! Josiah had been there before, and it was special to get to go back with him. They had live entertainment while you were eating. Everything from music, to old type gun shows, and divers who dove from up to 28 feet into a 14 foot deep pool with a waterfall too! It was a ton of fun!!

Keep checking back...there's more to come, so long as the computer cooperates!

oh my! I can hardly believe you hiked all the way up there! In 06' we took the train up and it was like a 45-50 min trip just to get to the top! How long did it take you guys to climb to the top? That's so awesome! :-)

Casa Bonita is fun! We didn't get to see the divers, but it was memorable anyway.

Lacey said...

Yay, yay, yay!!! Thanks for trying again so soon! :-) Aren't you two something else with your matching colors. :-) That's funny that you guys went to Casa Bonita because I remember going about 6 years ago! :-) Look forward to more pictures!

Thanks for the honeymoon post, Abi...I love the pictures too! I'm glad you've taken to posting on the blog.

I've followed the Wissman's for a couple years and only recently have de-lurked. Yours and Josiah's story is very sweet and amazing! You two look especially cute in your matching shirts. ;-)

I've been to Casa Bonita too. That fountain is so pretty...we took lots of pictures in front of it as well when we were there. The divers were incredible. I love that restaurant!

Shalom! :-)
