Day #176

Andy and I have been enjoying hiking in Colorado. The problem is that we seem to be really awful at choosing trails and actually going on the right ones. We look at the maps, do some research, but things keep going wrong. Today’s hike was a little sketchy as the “trail” was barely the width of my foot in most places, and seemed to wander somewhat aimlessly through the forest. We stuck with it though and ended up climbing up some pretty serious grade with switchbacks before we got to this lookout. Beautiful yes! And thankfully there was something to see before we had to turn around (were on a time crunch due to work), since, come to find out, we weren’t on the right trail at all. In fact, we’re pretty sure it barely qualified for a trail since it wasn’t marked on any map we could find. That broken – half missing- “trail marker sign” should have been a bigger clue…
