After our rafting adventure, we drove to the top of Mount Evans. It was cold and we hadn't really planned to drive there, so we didn't pack warm clothes; as such, we decided to stay at the lookout point and enjoy the views from there. We were able to see Pike's Peak and many other notable 14ers. We also saw some wild animals, which included marmots, mountain goats and big horn sheep.

After our mountain excursion, we headed back to Fort Collins and went to dinner. It was kind of sad to think about how we were leaving the next day. I'd grown quite comfortable in Colorado despite the fact that I was living out of a suitcase. I easily could have stayed a few more days ... or weeks... but Italy calls, so I certainly have that to look forward to!
I don't have any rafting pictures since it's a little hard to operate a camera while paddling and being splashed in the face. If anyone is really curious, I can direct you to the website that houses the rafting pictures for the outfitter we used. They're kind of funny to look at.
