Last night we slept in the pop-up on our Uncle's driveway. After breakfast we went on a drive up through some of the mountains. At the top of one mountain we got parked and walked around. Some of the boys wanted to look over the edge but mom didn’t approve, but we did get pretty close. We had to leave early because of a meeting Uncle Dean had at the hospital. After he came home we ate lunch and got ready to go on a hike to the Hanging Lake near Glenn Wood Colorado. It was about an hour and a half drive to the mountain. The hike itself was 1.2 miles up a steep rocky mountain trail. The trail followed a cold mountain stream until the top were there was a small lake. The lake was really clear and had an aqua blue color. Feeding the lake was a water fall that fell about 40 feet. Mason, Matt, and I climbed up next to it before we went down. Once we climbed down the mountain we went to a rodeo. The rodeo started with bull riding and then went into cattle roping. After that they had an event were little kids road sheep, and team roping. They had other events like steer riding for older kids and more bull riding. One of the last bull riders was flung off his bull and in mid air his head and the bull’s head collided. He was knocked unconscious and an ambulance had to pick him up. After the rodeo we just drove home and went to bed.
