Took my family to YMCA of the Rockies
I liked the YMCA of the Rockies so much when I went there for the CQI Retreat, I decided to take my family back this last weekend, partly to show them the area and partly to investigate it further for future family trips. We rented a cabin for the night. My husband and I got some trail maps, checked out the pool and craft center. The craft center was really pretty nice with silk dying, tie dye t-shirts, mosaics, and jewelry making. They had a choice of beads that would have made my fellow quilters drool! We drove through part of Rocky Mountain National Park and stopped at Morraine Park and Bear Lake in particular. The next morning my daughter and I went horseback riding. We took an hour long guided tour that took us around the edge of a mountain. Being slightly afraid of heights, I was a little nervous trusting my horse to keep us from falling down the 100-200 ft drop down the mountain! There were some beautiful views though and our guide kept us talking which made it easier for me.
