Missing the Mountains: Thoughts on Colorado

As a lifelong resident of Hampton Roads, VA, I have always preferred the scenery of the water (e.g., beaches, rivers, creeks, bays, etc.).  Recently I was going through some pictures of my summer in Denver, CO (2004) and was feeling nostalgic for the ice-covered mountains.  Denver was such a great city.  Some of my friends are planning a move to Denver to plant a church (check out their awesome website).  I really enjoyed my time in Denver.  It was a very progressive city that had all the accoutrements of a metropolis with the community and charm of a small town.  The people were friendly, interesting, and active.  While downtown, our team worked with at-risk children, Hispanic immigrants, and the surprisingly large homeless population.

One of the highlights from that summer was a camping trip we took to Rocky Mountain National Park (led by the illustrious and uber-talented James Tealy).  During that time I tried my hand at the National Geographic videographer thing… below is a video compiled from that camping trip.
