Last hiking post, I promise!

Still here in Colorado, although I’m heading up to Denver today to spend a couple days with my friend, Maddie!

On Tuesday, my dad I decided to give Raspberry Mountain another go… If you’re a long-time reader you might remember a certain horrible hiking experience I had a while back on the same mountain. Tennis shoes + snow and ice do not make for a fun hike. Spoiler alert: we never made it to the top.

This time, however, there was no snow and I was sporting my hiking boots, so things went a lot better. The whole hike (including time at the top) only took about 2 hours and 45 minutes and it was 6.4 miles round trip.

Although I was getting tired as we were climbing to the top, the view was beyond worth it. When you climb to the very top you’re standing on a few boulders and you have a 360 degree view around you. Breathtaking doesn’t even describe it.

Gorgeous, right?

Yesterday morning I headed out for a 4 mile hike around Garden of the Gods. I’ve been there many times before (and posted about it before…) so I’ll spare you all the photos. You can see more here, here and here. Here are a few I put up on Instagram:

I had a fun time hiking around and managed to not get lost this time! I also sent this lovely good morning photo to a couple friends:

Cute, right? I thought so.

So that’s all on Colorado Springs!
