Hiking Section 16, Colorado Springs

Today my best chum, Kiwi, her kooky new Weimaraner, Raven, and I hiked our favorite trail. Section 16, part of Manitou Springs Trails and Open Space, is an area of old-growth pine forest, babbling brooks, awesome rock formations and outstanding views of the city and the Garden of the Gods.

The hike we took -- the Palmer Red Rock Loop -- is a six-mile trek, reasonably difficult for the first hour (all uphill), and then open vistas and easy sailing the rest of the way.

Yay! Spring hiking has arrived! Me so happy!

Wow, that is beautiful! All we have here is flat fenland. Boring, boring, boring.

Still, I couldn't do six miles with hills anymore, and neither could the dogs!
