Garden of the Gods 9 May 2019

It was a snowy day, but not too bad for doing the perimeter of Garden of the Gods. Only three folks braved the cool weather. Click HERE to see our route.

Mueller State Park 3 May 2019

It was another nice day for a walk in the park. The snow capped Pikes Peak and the mountains in the Sawatch range looked great. Click HERE to see our route.

Eleven Mile St. Park 19 Apr 2019

It was a SUPER day to wander 4 miles on a relatively easy trek at Eleven Mile State Park. It was Earth Day, so we brought bags to help with cleanup efforts. The ice on the lake was beginning to melt back from the shoreline.

Garden of the Gods 3 Apr 2019

Another nice stroll in the wonderful Garden of the Gods park. Click HERE to see our route.

Woodmen Valley Open Space 27 Feb 2019

This was a relatively short hike, mainly along a ridge with amazing hoodoo formations. If you've never been there, you are missing one of The Springs great little wonders. Have visitors from out of town? Take them along on this easy excursion!
