Hiking Photos

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!

Lincoln Mt Open Space 21 Feb 2019

It was a cool day for a hike, but at least not windy. The trail was kinda lumpy from horses which had previously been on the trail when it was muddy. Click HERE to see our route. 

Ute Valley Open Space 8 Feb 2019

A glorious day was spent wandering among the trees and rocks of Ute Valley. It was cool, but so clear for taking photos.

Palmer Park North 30 Jan 2019

It was a good day to try out the north side of the park with its magnificent views. This may have been the first time the "Club" has done these trails. Click HERE to see the route.

Fountain Creek Regional Trail 23 Jan 2019

Although cool, it was a clear day to do this hike along Fountain Creek. The hike was about 5 miles round-trip, starting at the El Pomar Youth Sports Park and going south to Academy Blvd. Literally, thousands of Canada Geese were in the Sports Park, including one that may have been an albino!
