Hiking With Dennis June 12, 2015

We hiked into the Natural Arch from the East just to be different; it was!  Does anybody know what a whole lot of lichen is called?  Would it be a patch, a spread, a bed or what do you think?

It was a good day for hiking, overcast with a little sun and just a few sprinkles, enough to get my rain jacket on and then it quit.........

 

We will be hiking Monday, Wayne will lead us on another interesting 5 mile hike...........

Hiking With Dennis June 8, 2015

Wayne led us up an old logging road for about 2.5 miles, it was a little steep and would be rated a "moderate" hike.  We found the purple lupine diner open so that is where we had our lunch.  We were on the NE shoulder of Agua Ramon mountain.........

Lots of  wildflowers, in about a week the drive into Cathedral CG should be beautiful............

Hiking With Dennis June 5, 2015

We visited 2 kilns, one in ruins the other still in fair shape.  The moisture we have received the last 6 weeks has brought out the wildflowers like I haven't seen for several years.  Even in this "dry" region the flowers were flourishing. After seeing the kilns we hiked on up a ways and went up to a high point for our lunch.  Welcome to Bill & Karen Early to our hiking group, hope you enjoy the outings as much as we do..........

 

Next Fridays hike will be a bit harder, we will go to the Natural Arch but approach it from the East, which is a longer and off-trail route.

Remember our hike on Monday, Wayne will lead us on a good outing..............9AM at the South Fork Visitors Center, South Fork Colorado
