No Reply At All

Today, I went for hike at Reynolds Park. It is an open space park near Conifer. I was there two years ago. It is a nice park with great views of Pikes Peak and Rampart Range. The weather was nice today. It was in the 50's in town and probably the high 40's at Reynolds Park. Anyway here are a couple of pictures.

No Jacket Required

The weather was outstanding in Colorado today. The temperature reached the 60’s in Lakewood. I went for a hike at Alderfer/Three Sisters Park near Evergreen. The temperature was in the 50’s there. I hiked up Evergreen Mountain (8,536 feet). On top, I sat on the rocks and enjoyed the sunshine. I never even had to put on a jacket. I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich while I was up there. After enjoying lunch and the view, I took the long way down. I made a side trip up The Brother for old time’s sake. Here are a few pictures from the day.

Happy New Year! I’m back home in Colorado now. I got back on December 30th. I had fun visiting family in North Carolina. It was good to see everybody. I especially enjoyed throwing snowballs at Carter. Here are a few pictures from the visit.
