On Day 5 we were supposed to go to the Great Sand Dunes, and we did, but it was so stormy that we couldn't even see any of them. We were going to go Sand Sledding and we were looking forward to it, but a snow storm moved in and so we stopped at the museum but then continued onto Canon (canyon) city. We stopped for the night and this was the first and last hotel with a hot tub. The next day we toured the royal gorge by helicopter and by train.

|That night Ethan and I were hungry, not Shawn and Jace so we found a Village Inn and this was what |
Ethan ordered. I didn't think he could put his mouth around it, but I was wrong!!!
|Shawn found a helicopter tour company that was reasonably priced so we all got our first |
ride and it was pretty nice. The boys thought it was great!!
|Jace is pretty excited.|
|Shawn and Jace all set to go.|
|An eagles view of the Royal Gorge Suspension Bridge. We couldn't actually visit the park as there was a huge|
fire last year and almost everything but the bridge got burnt. So this was the next best thing.
