Another Strike: Trip to the Glenwood Caverns

I feel like I should rename this blog something like “All the things NOT to do when you have a camera.” A few weeks ago, we decided to take a spontaneous trip to Glenwood Springs to visit the Glenwood Caverns. After packing up the family, I grabbed my DLSR camera. I figured this would beContinue reading “Another Strike: Trip to the Glenwood Caverns”
