Hiking in Colorado

Occasionally I forget about things that I love to do. I'll put down my knitting for a few weeks or not pick up a book for months. As soon as I take up that hobby again I can't believe I let myself go so long without enjoying it.

Hiking is one of those activities. I did it all summer in college when I worked at camp. It was wonderful. When we were in Colorado last month I indulged in hiking almost every day. One of the best hikes we did was taking the Lily Pad Lake trail and then heading down into Frisco.

I wonder how Lily Pad Lake got its name.

Jeff leads the way.

So it turns out I enjoy wearing a t shirt and a stocking cap. Don't judge me.

Checking out Lake Dillon and Frisco.

I've decided I'm not going to go a decade without hiking again. I bought boots and intend to hike at least once a month (well, not when it's winter). I went up to Ledges State Park on Sunday and got in three hours of hiking. I am hoping to get even more done on Labor Day. If anyone is looking to take a walk in the woods give me a call. I'd be happy to join you.

t-shirt and stocking cap, eh? ok, i'll still love you, but if you start carrying around a hackey sack i'm staging a hippie intervention.
