Eighteen of us: one guy came from Canada, there was a father-son from Texas, but most of us were local or from the greater Denver area.
Friday evening, 10/31, through Sunday noon, 11/2/14.
We were blessed to have two wonderful co-leaders: Jack & Jeff.

We all stayed in the Oaks Lodge - #18 here.
Our first gathering and session was Friday evening, after dinner.
Our lodging and sessions were in the Oaks Lodge - amazing accommodations.
Saturday morning breakfast in the King James Dining Room.
Unfortunately, the king was away for the weekend. :) ... [Many of these people here were part of other retreats.]
Glen Eyrie Castle - originally the home of Gen William Palmer, the founder of Colorado Springs long ago.
A Sat morning session.
Some free time before lunch.
Out of the canyon now and up on the hillside - can you spot them?
You'll have to take my word for it - a large band of bighorn sheep, most laying down here.
Telephoto. .. Cheyenne Mtn in the background.
Can you spot the Castle?
Does this help?
It was there all along! .. Note new & improved channel coming out of Queen's Canyon, meant to mitigate against extreme flooding.
Looking east into the mouth of Queen's Cyn - currently closed to hiking. :(
Back just in time for lunch.
An after-lunch group outing.
We'll be trekking up to Dawson's Grave.
It helps to enlarge this image. .. I believe the grave is Point D.
