The sun behind us on the Ute Trail, Rocky Mountain National Park
We’d be looking forward to another September sojourn in Colorado right about now but, well, better not to linger on what might have been…
Next year, fall of 2021, we’re hoping
will prevent us from spending another week or so out there again. (COVID — I’m talking to YOU…) In the meantime, YouTube hiking videos are a glorious, if imperfect, way to celebrate the tangible beauty and mystique of the Rocky Mountains.
We continue to rack up “Ooh, let’s do THIS trail!” potential hikes for our next visit.
Here’s a video we enjoyed over lunch today. Ypsilon Mountain is one of my favorites although we’ve never hiked it, just enjoyed it from a distance. I took this photo in September 2017. A glorious peak!!
Someday, I’d like to revisit these same trails in the dead of a Colorado winter. Strap on a pair of snowshoes and experience nature’s glory all in white.
We encountered a group coming down one of the trails leading a couple of llamas along the path. Here’s husband hustling after them for a shot.
