We just got back from a vacation to Durango, Colorado. We had a great time. However, we hit a deer on the way up and it destroyed our Swagger Wagon Mini Van. (See photo below.) $7,500 dollars and two weeks later it was repaired (thank goodness for car insurance!). Below are some photos from our excursion with a picture of the "deer-killer."
Have lunch in the mountains for my wife's birthday (which is on August 15, the Assumption!)
My wife and some of our children with my father at Mesa Verde.
At Mesa Verde (Native American cliff dwellings) with our youngest son on my back.
The Deer-Slaying Swagger Wagon. It doesn't look all that bad, but it was. We couldn't drive it. We hit the poor deer at about 65 miles per hour.
