The Colorado Trail

I had the chance to make a short hike on the Colorado Trail near the Kenosha Pass about 10 days ago…   It was a relief to get away from the city (and national politics) and take a special friend for some fresh air and green trees. I didn’t plan the trip to make landscape photos, but I did take my camera!

We met some wonderful folks along the trail; many of them were there for multi-day hikes. One of them, an Oklahoman named Tim, was out for the better part of a month and would cover a significant part of the trail, “…until his wife called him and told him to come on home.”

As wonderful as it all was, reality remained, whispering in the distance–from the trail, we could see a massive fire building on the other side of South Park, a reminder of our dry conditions and perhaps, environmental change.
