Hiking Close to Home

We will travel around the world looking for nature, adventure, and beauty, and I think we sometimes forget that nature, adventure and beauty are in our own backyard.

My husband and I live in Roxborough Park. It is a a subdivision and a state park south of Denver, one of the largest cities in the US. However, this slice of wilderness and paradise is a short hike away. These pictures were taken just three miles from our home.

Over the next three days, I will be posting more of the pictures of our "local adventure" as we follow mountain lion tracks and find our own little enchanted clearing in the forest.

It is a gorgeous day in Colorado today. The temperatures are in the 60's and the skies are a brilliant blue. The morning haze has not quite burned off adding so much depth to the landscape. It's hard to believe that it is January. Yes, we are desperately in need of rain or snow, but it is hard to pass up a day like this.

Take your camera and walk out your door.  What do you see?
