Day Hike

Sometimes the thin air is good for you!! Nichole and I took the girls up for a day hike at high altitude to get the lungs, heart and legs going. And go they did.  We only hiked 4 miles but it was enough to get a decent work out in on a Saturday afternoon. The high country is a green as ever. The flowers are abundant and vibrant as ever.

It should be a banner year for any and all hunting in Colorado this year. We are seeing consistent rains both in the mountains and out on the plains.

Here are few photos from high altitude.




















The hike.


















The girls remember snow....and they still love it!

Nichole and the girls at 12,600 ft!!

Speaking of Ptarmigan.
