Weekend in the Mountains

This past holiday weekend we took an overnight trip to the mountain to visit my parents. They live outside of Glen Haven in an area known as The Retreat. We had a wonderful time hiking in the Comanche Peak Wilderness on Saturday and then even a better time at the Estes Puppy Park Sunday morning. My understanding is we did a good job wearing the pups out (and they did a good job of wearing us out too). Though short, it was a great weekend and here are a few photos from the trip.
