Who: Sammy and myself
Length: 6 miles
Time: 3 hours
Weather: 30-40 degrees, cloudy, foggy, sunny
Today we hiked the loop around Mt. Kineo, which I first blogged here. What made today interesting was the weather. Colorado Springs was overcast and cold, around 30 degrees F. As we ascended the Seven Bridges trail, we entered the clouds so it was foggy and ice-crystally. As we reached Jones Park, we emerged above the clouds to sunny, warm conditions. Then, we returned on Bear Creek trail and Buckhorn trail, re-entering the fog and snow.
We met a friendly couple from Chicago on the Seven Bridges trail. We saw signs asking for help finding a lost dog named Lucky, but we did not see the dog on our route. I think that I need to replace my camera. It’s adding an annoying background noise to all the video.
This hike followed the yellow line:
