Cool hike featuring orange
Here's the big picture. A group of 7 wearing orange or yellow-green celebrated a new hunting session by walking on the southern edge of our fair community. A little bit of ice on the road soon yielded to the sunshine. We welcomed David back from Spain and Barbara back from the flatlands where snow isn't a regular event. Thanks to all for your lively companionship on this pleasant stroll.
Remember to vote tomorrow (Tuesday). Remember that Dennis has gone to Kansas for most of the winter--no hikes on Thursday.
When snow returns, you will want your snowshoes for Monday hikes--tune them up!
Remember Wednesday for the next hike (not Tuesday). We'll leave for a drive across the big valley at 9 a.m. (from the Visitor Center). We'll stop at the Great Sand Dunes National Park's visitor center. Then, we'll probably hike up the three miles to Mosca Pass, have a lunch (bring your own) and go back down. That's the plan and it appears that the weather will be a little warmer than in South Fork. If ice prevails, we'll take a lower path and explore elsewhere.
Judy plans going with us and seems to have some alternative hikes in mind, on more level ground.
The weather forecast predicts that we'll have a fine sunny day in the 50s. Hunting is prohibited in the National Park.
See you Wednesday --Doug Knudson
