This was a short hike with Sammy and my parents-in-law’s dog, Trapper. Windy Ridge Road is near Alma, Colorado. It goes from the Buckskin Gulch up to Windy Ridge, where the old Bristlecone Pines are located. I was hoping to make it up to Bristlecones. But, due to a-lot of snow on the road we had to park too far away and did not have enough time to make it all the way up there. I think the dogs had a good time, and it was good to get a little hiking in after a stressful week.
