Colorado National Monument, Grand Junction, Colorado

To commemorate Independence Day, my boss (U.S. Senator Mark Udall) and I rocked climbed up Otto’s Route to raise the American flag at the summit of Independence Monument, a 550-foot-tall rock spire in the Colorado National Monument. Not bad for a last day on the job.

 

Hiking in Tabernash, Colorado, with my brother and his twin daughters. They are nearly 3-years-old now. It has been cool watching their personalities develop…they couldn’t be more different.

 

Sitting on the shoulders of a giant. I spent two years working in and exploring Washington, D.C.

 

Me at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem during a Birthright Israel trip. I asked an Israeli man why women prayed separately from men and why the women’s section was 1/3 the size of the men’s. His response: “Americans are all about equality.”
