My Summer of Hiking

The puppies are ready for some hiking!

The puppies are ready for some hiking!

With summer and warmer weather already here, I’m gearing up for another Colorado hiking season. Last year’s was spectacular, with my puppy Anna and I getting out to do more than a trail a week between the end of March and the end of October. We explored several new locations, oftentimes with friends or my girlfriend Maria and her puppy Gauge, while also revisiting a fair many of our favorite spots with our state parks pass. As we search for ideas and plan for this year, here’s a photography look back at some of our favorites from last season…

Last season was spectacular, with amazing weather and absolutely beautiful views on so many trails. We have more than a few incredible stories to share, making it a tall task to top it this year. We’ll give it our best, though, and have a spectacular time trying.  Until then, happy trails!

Happy time at the end of our hike!

    Great to see these beautiful pics of Colorado in the summertime. It looks so much different from when I was there. Love the waterfalls.

    I would like to use your photo of the creekside trail leading to Ouzel Lake to make a quilt. Please send me an email if that is OK.
