Hiking in Boulder's Flatirons....

Last weekend I met up with some of my newly found Denver friends and ran up to Boulder for a little hike in Chautauqua Park near the first Flatiron Mountains.  Dogs in tow we made our way to the big arch at the end of the trail and were rewarded with a view that stretched from the foothills near Boulder to the skyline of Denver's skyscrapers.  It was a fairly vertical 4 hour round trip hike and I could feel it.  It's that good feeling you get when you push yourself a bit and feel the burn.  Of course my knees were feeling the pinch on the way back down, but I guess that's what happens when you get old ;)  More please.....

 

Thanks for a great day guys!  Looking forward to the summer ahead!
