11

Turn it up to 11, it is Carter’s Birthday! My buddy Chuck was out here again. I had hoped that he would help celebrate Carter’s Birthday again, but he said “why bother, Carter won’t believe that I went to Colorado for his birthday.” We sort of celebrated anyway. Landon couldn’t come this year. He is busy getting ready for his Everton loan in England. I didn’t want him to show up anyway, he would probably gloat too much about the Galaxy’s championship. Have Happy Birthday Carter; I hope it is a great one!

The Horse Thief

I went for a hike on Sunday. I went to Horsethief Falls and Horsethief Park. The trailhead for the hike is the same trailhead that I used for the Pancake Rocks hike I did over a year ago. It is north of Cripple Creek and west of Pikes Peak. The weather was nice, but it was still quite cold in the shade. The waterfall was frozen over, but I could hear the water under the ice. After viewing the falls, I hiked north through Horsethief Park. Here are some pictures.
