Okay, it was a pretty short hike. But, I went up (I'm guessing 800 vertical feet), and had a view, so in my mind, it qualifies as a hike instead of a mere walk. It's in the 50s today (sorry, relatives in Chicago) so I decided I had to get out of the house and enjoy it!
Green Mountain, which we all call Brown Mountain, is visible from my house and not far away. Although we got some snow last week, about 6 inches, most of it had melted, making it a muddy mess! However, it was a beautiful day, and only a few minutes before I took off my sweater and wore a T-SHIRT! Hello, vitamin D! A couple walking the other way teased me for being overly eager for spring...not just a t-shirt, but a Rockies t-shirt!
Views to the north of Golden and mountains beyond. Views to the east of Downtown Denver.
