All but two missed a great one
People were here climbing the rocks. One was a 9-year-old (or less) who bounced up the rock, slipped back a few times and swung around to go higher. She obviously trusted the rope and the holder. David and I decided pedestrian locomotion was more our style.
We got to see some of the new bike/hike trails and the usual impressive views of the San Juans and the Sangre de Cristos. Recommendation:
don't miss the Penitente Canyon. Take your guests there.
Coming events: Moon light night on Shaw Mesa. I think it is Saturday night at about 6:30. Bring some things to heat and eat.

Next Monday: Hike at 9 a.m.
Next Wednesday: I hope to stroll up to the top of Del Norte Peak and hope you'll join me, even if you want to admire the country from the saddle. 9 a.m. depart from Visitor Center. Hike about 3 miles up and 3 down. It's a pleasant hike. Please join me. (If the snow lingers, we may have to take a lower elevation walk.)
