We have spent the month of August lazily moving ourselves and our belongings out West, and have been warmly received at every Bauer household we've invaded along the way (all of them). I've managed to keep a rough photographic account of the month, minus our first relaxing days in UT, where I was still too disoriented from all-nighters packing and driving to pick up the camera.

Mt. Bierstadt

Two days before leaving on a month-long journey, C and I had the pleasure of accompanying two of my most favorite people up a mountain. It couldn't have been a more beautiful day. 

Mt. Bierstadt is in the Front Range, close to Mt. Evans, and stands at 14,065ft. We accessed the peak from the Guanella Pass trailhead.
