Hiking Eisenhower State Park

Like I said in my original post about Eisenhower State Park, we didn’t get to do nearly as much hiking as we would have liked due to the trails being super muddy but we did get a bit in and the trails over looking the lake are gorgeous! The non-muddy portions of the trail were

Hiking Hickory Creek Trail

I needed a hike and searching through trusty All Trails I found the Hickory Creek Trail. This short trail is part of a larger trail system and we hiked farther than just the little loop. This is a supper easy trail on primarily flat, even ground and very little rise in elevation. The trail starts

Colorado: Bear Creek Preserve

There are worlds of great hikes in Colorado and thus it was not difficult for Keltin and I to find a trail near Telluride. The trail head up to the Bear Creek Falls is a short walk from the main street. This hike was sadly on a time limit as the only parking spot that

Colorado: Hiking Alberta Peak

Keltin and I really enjoyed this hike. It begins at Wolf Creek Pass and gains about 1,200 feet of altitude. When starting out on this trail you walk though a lot of beetle kill but there are young trees coming back. Due to extra light the undergrowth was lush and the wild flowers were beautiful.

Keltin and I love exploring little towns. They are quirky and typically have good food and old buildings that present great opportunities for photos – Ouray was no exception. We were starving by the time we got there but it was still a bit too early for lunch so we wandered and found a bookstore.

Colorado: Hiking Zapata Falls

On the way to the Great Sand Dunes National Park you come to a ‘T’ in the road and a sign that points on way towards the sand dunes and the other arrow points towards Zapata Falls. After exploring the national park we decided to visit the falls since we were already in the area.

Colorado: Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve

Visiting the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve was probably one of my favorite things on this trip and I’d go back in a moment. The landscape is so surreal. I knew where we were going but its one thing to know and another to see the giant dunes rising up above you. Walking

Colorado: Treasure Falls

On the way up to Wolf Creek Pass out from Pagosa Springs there are a couple of places to stop. One is a scenic overlook that was closed while we were there. The other stop is Treasure Falls. This is a short trail (.6 mile loop) with a small parking lot that gets busy on
