Summer Hiking in Colorado

A snapshot look at some of our hikes this summer.
Lily Pad Lake (halfway between Frisco and Silverthorne - if you take the mountain trail route.

Shrine Ridge Pass (Vail Pass area). Flowers and snow within a half mile of each other.

Booth Falls Trail near Vail.

We topped out at 12,000' and then came down for the Continental Divide sign picture. Conor's in the hoodie and Kyle is the green shirt guy.

The next ones are all from the Bristlecone Pine Scenic Area.  It's about an hour south of Breckenridge at 11,700'.

Mt. Bross (14,172') is in the background.

If you look closely at the pine cone it's covered in a sugary like decoration.  They were really cool.

State College in June

Wow, I haven't caught up very well. Hiking at Shaver's Creek Environmental Center .

Enjoying a break with Liam on the one hot day at the Penn State Arboretum.

Penn State has some nice facilities outside of the classroom.  Now we just have to make it back there in the fall for a volleyball match.

The on the coldest and rainiest day we visited Penn's Cave.
A boat tour through a cave - it was fantastic!
Coming up - summer in the mountains.  Stay tuned.
