Hiking Greyrock with the Gang

March 14, 2009 at 7:56 pm

It’s spring, it’s my birthday, and I’m lucky enough to have my favorite group of friends together one more time. Over the weekend, Dylan and Ann came up from Santa Fe, and we joined them with Doug and Liz and Sean for a big dinner on Friday night and a hike up Greyrock Mountain on Saturday. There’s some pictures from the sunny Saturday hike in the gallery.

The hike to the summit of Greyrock is a classic jaunt, starting in the Poudre Canyon northwest of Fort Collins. Doug asked me how many times I’ve hiked this trail, and I came up with a number around 12. I think Saturday was our 13th! It’s amazing that you can do a hike so many times and still love it so much. It was a beautiful day, a wonderful place to get some more miles on my boots, an amazing view, and great friends to share it with.

Thanks, everybody, for a great day, and sore legs! Let’s do it again next year!

Liv is having an awesome day!
