Thursday, 6/14, at Brian and Ann's beautiful home in Littleton, a suburb S of Denver.
Of course, daddy does not have a favorite - no way!
OK, Sunday, 6/27 - back in Lakewood.
The kids are in bed now - time to put the Great Treasure Hunt into action.
What would treasure chest be without treasure & beer.
Wrapping up this part of the project.
Now the dirty work.
Nothing out of the ordinary here!
Time for the treasure map and clues phase.
How many pirates were smart enough to use Google Earth??
Calligraphy is the key to authenticity.
A work of art.
So much for a work of art - but perhaps even more authentic.
Memorize this quick as it's about to fade forever.
The treasure then having aged a day or two - ask the kids how it turned out.
OK - Wed, 6/30, in Colorado Springs now. .. Clare stretching before her BIG run.
A quick pit stop and she's off - up along the posts on the trail above the highway here.
We've driven ahead to the next point where the trail just touches the highway.
Wow - we're up pretty high here.
Of course, it's not a level playing field.
Aaargh - thar she blows, mates - Pikes Peak, 14,110' above Lakeville and Santa Clarita.
Part of Clare's support team - in prayer.
Thar she comes - skirting Little Pike.
So, where are all the other runners? .. Are you mad - what other runners?
Not over the edge - to the right.
About half way to the summit treasure now.
