(Thankfully, that was the only
rain we saw the whole trip.)
Getting out on the trail for the first time was a blast. I loved seeing the little lean-tos and campfire remnants lining the path. The aspens were shimmering in the light breeze and I found it hard to keep my eyes on the ground and not at the amazing blue sky. See, where I live, its a rare day when you see the sun through the masses of clouds. In Colorado, it was a rare occasion to see any clouds. Why can't everywhere be like that!?
We hiked up at an easy incline before turning around at about an hour, which we'd decided would leave enough time for us to drive to Salida in time for my run. It was a gorgeous first hike and gave me a taste for what was to come!
