Molly and I visited White Ranch Park again today. We hiked about 7 miles and mapped several new trails. This park has some nice trails and we always get to see wildlife when we visit. Today we saw 15  + deer including two very large Bucks. Of course, we also went Geocaching and found two caches GC4BEA (A Taxing Cache) and GCQZH2 (Sawmill Trail).

My oldest daughter Stephanie joined the team today for some Geocaching. We found six caches including a wonderful virtual cache at a Veterans Memorial. We all had fun tromping through the leaves on a crisp fall day.

Fun day today! Sonja, Molly and I hiked in Chatfield park for a few hours today, taking time to play in the South Platte. Molly then got a bath at Sud-Z-Pup and we finished off the day with a DVD (Two Brothers) and Take-Out Chinese.

Molly and I take an hour walk every evening about 7:00pm. During the summer we will meet a dozen other dogs along the trail. The winter months are a different story. We may see one or two others in our travels, if the weather is not to bad. Tonight is a perfect example, a beautiful evening with snow falling and the street lights giving off a warm glow and only Molly and myself out enjoying it. Ho Hum!

Just got back from a wonderful weekend in Steamboat Springs, CO. The Three of us stayed in a great condo with awesome views of the Yampa Valley and beyond. We lucked out and caught the tail end of the aspen fall colors. Most of our weekend was spent walking, hiking and Geocaching. On Saturday we enjoyed a 3.5 mile hike on Fish Creek Falls Trail and Sunday, Molly and I were up early to hike 6.5 miles of Spring Creek before it snowed to much. We also walked along the Yampa and did the Down Town shopping thing. As for Geocaches, we did 5, bringing the total to 180. WOW!

Had an excellent day today! Molly and I hiked Grays Peak, 14,270'. The hike was about 8 mile round trip with a 3000' elevation gain. Snow covered the trail above 13,000' and made a very interesting decent. It was a blue sky day with the morning temperature in the low 30s. 25 mph winds with gusts over 35 mph made the wind chill in the teens. The wind was brutal at times, and I was happy I had my Gortex jacket and long underwear. We sat on the peak for about an hour, checking out the awesome view.
 It was necessary for me to move slowly on the way down as the trail became packed and icy making it difficult to get a good footing. Molly, on the other hand, moved with great ease and wondered why I kept falling. I had considered doing Torrys Peak also but decided not to over do it and save it for another day. All in all we had a good time. Molly did great on her first 14er and can't wait to try another.
