Hiking the Colorado Trail is a perfect way to spend the day! The scenery is picture perfect! I hiked a portion of the Molas Trail, an 8 mile round trip hike, that descends to the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, and follows the Colorado Trail for a little ways.
The weather couldn’t have been better…it was in the 80’s and sunny! A perfect August summer day!
I love the smell of pine trees and they were everywhere!
To me…there is nothing better than to be getting exercise while hiking…with gorgeous trees, mountains, flowers and sky to gaze at!
I had to take a photo of this dead tree. I’m not sure what my fascination with dead trees is…perhaps their starkness.
It’s always nice to take a break and just be!
We’re getting closer to the lake…
If anything ails you…take a hike in Colorado!
