Another beautiful January day! Molly and I just had to go for a hike in the foothills. I chose to visit Deer Creek Canyon Park because it is close and the snow wouldn't be to deep to hike without snowshoes. We hiked a little over 7 miles total and found another Geocache, (GCH1GP) Deer Creek Canyon Lieberry. Books are traded at this cache so I traded Star Trek V for Digital Fortress by Dan Brown.

Visiting the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo is always a good time for us, and this year is no exception. We always seam to purchase tickets for the last weekend of the show, not sure why, and have never been disappointed. Today we enjoyed  the "Working Dog " competition, "Mutton Bustin", and for me, the "Saddle Broncs" were exhilarating to watch. This year was the 100th anniversary of the NW and they had several presentations with old photos and film that was great. As I watched the old photos on the screen, I couldn't help thinking about my first rodeo here nearly 40 years ago. I still enjoy it as if it were my first time.

Snow!  I was so happy to finally see some white stuff around here that I took Molly to Chatfield to play in the stuff. We goofed off for about 2.5 hours. I was soaked and Molly had little balls of snow all over her paws and legs. As always, we had a great time.

I was working in an area of town I don't often visit and decided to look for a few caches. So after work I found 3 in the general area. (GCRWM5) 7th Ave Strip, (GCRVYZ) Blackbox and (GCR0HZ) What Lies Beneath. I don't often look for Micro's but the two I found today had unique containers.

I have been feeling a little under the weather the last few days so I haven't done any thing too exciting. Although, I have been wanting to log a few Waymarks at and sitting at home gave me the time to do it. I set up three waymarks this morning; "Highlands Point Compass Rose", "Town Center Clock" and "Speed Limit 12 1/2". All are located in Highlands Ranch not far from my home. As soon as they are listed I will add a page on this site with links to

Molly and I had so much fun at Deer Creek Canyon Park last Friday we decided to return this morning for another hike. I took my ice cleats this time, so maneuvering on the ice was much easer. We took the Plymouth Mountain Trail and the Scenic View Trail this time out. The views of the city and beyond were awesome. Many more hikers on the trail today and even a few bicyclist braved the icy trail. Close to the lookout on Plymouth Mountain we found (GC7C8) Deer Creek Canyon Cache. Our travels today took us 7.04 miles with an elevation gain of 1707 ft. This is an excellent way to start your week.

I did take off work early today and took Molly for a hike in Deer Creek Canyon Park. We hiked several trails and found a Geocache, (GCKW7R) Mindawg's Yearling. A portion of the Plymouth Creek Trail was solid ice, making travel hazardous, to say the least. I even had to sled down a steep portion of trail on my fanny pack to avoid falling. Molly didn't have any problems maneuvering on the ice with her 4x4 paws and seemed put out at my slowness. All together, we hiked a total of 7.62 miles in the park on a warm January afternoon.

I can't believe the weather we are having. High 50s and 60s in January. I think I'll take off work early tomorrow and do some hiking.

While on our daily walk, Molly an I were surprised by a flock of geese that had decided to land just in front of us. Standing very still we watched and waited until over a hundred birds had landed less than 150 ft from us. Very cool!

I decided to try my luck ice fishing today at Wolford Reservoir, just north of Kremmling, CO. I worried a little on the drive up as the winds and snow were producing white-out conditions, but as I neared my destination things quieted down a bit. The temperature was a warm 30° F and the winds slowed to about 15 MPH, making sitting on the ice bearable. I think I only had my line in the water for five minutes before I caught my first fish. For the next two hours I caught a fish about every 10 to 15 minutes, releasing all but three.
About noon, a large rainbow trout nearly pulled my pole under the ice, putting up a nice fight as I reeled her in. She measured 17". WooHoo! So with my four fish limit, it was time to head home. I hope this is the first of many great fishing trips this year.
