Leave Only Footprints

View from Pueblo Mountain Park

firetowerWhat with one thing and another, we haven’t managed to get out and enjoy the mountains yet this trip but a window of opportunity opened up this morning and we got while the getting was good …

Our goal was one of our favourite lunch spots – the service is patchy, the choice is limited (to what you brought yourself, basically) but the views are fabulous. Although this time we didn’t lunch right at the top of the tower because of the wind. It was mostly gloriously sunny and warm, but every so often the wind would pour in and roar past us like a freight train, before dying down again. Very odd.

Apart from a couple of school outings, who stayed mostly on the lower slopes, we had the place more or less to ourselves and for much of our walk we had the pleasure of being the first (humans) to follow the trail since it snowed. I quite enjoyed attempting to interpret the various prints we did see but I don’t think anyone is going to be hiring me as their native guide any time soon.

me: ‘Oh how sweet! Squirrel! Boing boing boing!’

All in all, a very satisfying day’s outing
