Did one of the gorgeous local trails, Bowl and Pitcher, with my girlfriend on a still-warm-enough autumn day-- over a rickety old bridge, all along the river and up into the rocky hills, down by the shore, felt great to get far out of the city and deep into the woods.
Last weekend I hiked 9 miles with my friend Erica. We had quite an adventure getting there. We think we drove on a walking/bike path but my lil bug fit on it. We parked and saw a sign that said "3.6 miles to Pikes Peak" We started our hike. As we thought we were geting near signs kept saying .3 to Pikes Peak. Erica gave up, but I had to see it. It was pretty cool, but come to find out we could have driven right up to it. We went for the hike though that ended up to being around 9 miles. It was pretty fun though.
