“The earth has music for those who listen.” – Shakespeare.
Since summer is here it’s officially hiking season. Every open weekend we’ve had we go hiking and we were hoping to do a 14er this weekend. But probably postponing that til I get cleared by a doctor. :( Finally gave in for my hurt knee and went to see someone and had X-rays done yesterday, so keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t have a fractured patella.
Anyway… we’ve been doing easier hikes due to the knee and a couple weeks ago went up by Lyons, Colorado to do the Sleepy Lion Trail at Button Rock Preserve. It was a gorgeous day while we were there. No mud, no snow, and an easy trail. Most of the hike you are on a road, but the there is a cool dam that was pouring water from the preserve! You also get some nice views of Longs Peak and can go up to the reserve as well. This would be a great trail for a family or maybe even taking your grandparents that want to get outdoors, but just can’t handle a ton as you could just stay on the road the whole time too. Saw quite a few people trying to fish as we were coming down.
