We really do live in a beautiful place, and have so many trails around us. I mean, we are right next to Rocky Mountain National Park, but there are so many areas around us that I have never been! This summer, I am making it a goal of ours to get out more often and explore!
We still have snow topped peaks! (And probably will through August or so ..)
Yesterday, we went out for a bike ride! We both had some issues with the tires on our bikes, but once we got that fixed, we were on our way!
It really was perfect weather, a little windy, but not too breezy, and not too warm (or cool!) outside. We just beat a storm, because when we got home it started raining!
When we first started out, we went on this trail that was so rocky. I mean, it was like it used to be sea floor!
I guess I really am a biking wuss, cause that was not fun at all for me! It was so bumpy – a lot of those rocks were huge! We decided to go back to the road and just bike on that.
We are such rebels – closed gates mean nothing to us!
But, maybe not – looking closely the sign says the road is open to bikers. Nice!
We just had to crawl under the gate!
Sammy found a little tree his size! It is so encouraging to me seeing little trees growing – the forest is rebuilding!
Although when they talk about the “experimental forest”, I’m a little scared …
All in all, it was a fun time. We biked a little over 8 miles by the time we got back to the car – it was getting dark outside, so we wanted to get back before it was totally dark.
The fun thing is that we gained about 1800 feet in elevation – it was all uphill to our turnaround point, and then it was all downhill!
