Mount Cutler

Date: 4/28/2013
Who: Michelle, Trish, Richard, Sam, Samadhi and myself
Length: 2.5 miles
Time: about 2 hours
Weather: 60 degrees, sunny

This weekend, we met some new friends: Trish, Richard and Sam. Trish and Richard are musicians of The River’s Voice, and Sam is their son. They stayed with us for the weekend, while in Colorado Springs for a concert. We really enjoyed the weekend with them, as well as the concert!

On Sunday morning, we got to show our visitors around North Cheyenne Canyon Park. We started with Helen Hunt Falls. Then, hiked the popular Mt. Cutler hiking trail. The ladies did not go out to the overlook because the approach was a little too steep and gravelly. Everyone did reach the top of Mt. Cutler. The weather was great, and it was a very pleasant hike.

  1. Looked like another beautiful, blue sky day to be hiking. So glad you get out to enjoy the elation of the elevation 😉
    Keep wandering!

  2. I loved that hike — and that whole weekend with you and Michelle. Thanks for introducing us to some of Colorado’s beautiful landscapes. Hope we get to do it again.
