The first weekend of November we traveled to the Denver area to visit my brother and explore his new hometown. I fell in love with the area and this weekend’s trail run in El Moro made me long for the beautiful trails I saw and explored there. I was thankful to be able to run trails in El Moro yesterday but my mind kept drifting to CO….
Right out his front door is the trail that connects to the Cherry Creek ecological preserve area and I explored a couple of miles of it but PF prevented my running much of it. We went to Red Rocks Park and, while I wanted to run and run and run, my foot was bugging me so I took it as a cool bonding time to hike with my brother and husband. I have yet to upload the best pictures but you can see how cool it was…
We drove into the mountains to the west of Red Rocks and I was like a little kid in a candy store. It was sooo beautiful and the views from ~13,000 were breathtaking. We saw lakes, streams, parks and trails that made me so happy; at one point, I took off running on a path and got yelled at because they thought I might take off to run to the other side of the mountain.
We visited our friend Sam in Broomfield and I could see why he boasts about hitting a trail ~400 feet from his door. I was sad to leave CO and cannot wait to return and explore some more!
