North Rim Royal Gorge 2 Oct 2019

What started out as a foggy morning turned out very nice for hiking. 

Castlewood Canyon 26 Sept 2019

This was about a 4 mile hike around Castlewood Canyon State Park, which included a hike up to the top of the dam that had broken apart in 1933 and caused flooding as far away as Denver.  The weather was great.

South Blodgett Open Space 18 Sep 2019

It was a fine day to check out this new area of the Blodgett Peak Open Space.  The hike was fairly easy and the views of the hills and the quarry were good. To see our route, click HERE.

Cheyenne Mt. State Park 27 Aug 2019

It was overcast, but pleasant to wander among the trees on the Cougar's Shadow and Blackmer Loop trails.
