Engagement Day Photos

Friday, August 14, 2009. Driving over Independence Pass from Leadville to Aspen. I had no idea what was in store for me that day!
A grove of aspens, on the way to Aspen.

An overview of the John Denver Sanctuary. Song lyrics are etched on the large stone slabs. I am looking out toward the river, which is just outside the right frame of the picture. Kyle wandered off to take this picture and I was sitting on that rock, feeling incredibly content and peaceful. Right after returning from taking this picture, Kyle asked me to marry him!

We just got engaged!! (Can you tell we're excited?)

The day had been mostly overcast, but as Kyle was proposing, the sun came out from behind me. I think this song is appropriate for the moment! (Sunshine on my Shoulders)

Re-enacting the big question for the camera.
We had to pose by "our song."
