I love this time of year. It’s always so beautiful. The temps are dropping, the colors are changing, and it just feels great to be outside. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing, it’s just nice. A few weekends ago I got to hike Goulding Creek Trail with Laurie.
This 6 mile loop was quite the hike with a healthy climb for a pregnant woman! I really enjoyed it and felt I got a great workout. The day was great, not too hot, which was nice. The Fall color changes hadn’t hit at this point.
At the top was a cabin and lots of places for horses. We decided to grab a quick snack since there were some spots to sit and the sun was out.
It turns out that the top wasn’t far away, but this was definitely the better spot to eat and relax. The top intersects with Pinkerton-Flagstaff Trail…a trail I know well, but haven’t touched this year.
At the base of the trail, someone had contributed a couple of vehicles to the environment. Gee, how thoughtful.
The week after this hike I got out to the Colorado Trail from in town. The colors were starting to emerge!
Time to hit the high country for the color explosion!!
Around the house, we’ve been doing some organization and preparation for the baby. After close inspection, the boys approve of the changes.
