Roxborough State Park  
Went hiking today with a couple friends. Weather was pretty good while we were there (although it's been threatening since, it's mostly been a tease).

Anyway, took a few pictures. Mind you, these are from the best hike in the park (which goes up to the "top"), which is not to say they're from the most scenic part of the park (which is down in the middle of the "rocks"). Also got a free poster of the park (it's the 20th anniversary of the park's founding -- the poster has a John Fielder photograph of the park on it, and he even visited the park yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn't know anything about it, so I missed all of that).

As a bonus, a rare picture of me with short hair.

Anyway, pictures:

Well, time to get things done. Errands to take care of, work to do.

So beautiful! I love this time of year where everything looks like it is being flooded by an ocean of green.

Ok, that trail looks pretty child friendly. Where is it? Off hwy 93 south of Boulder?

No, you're twenty or thirty miles too far north, it's south of Denver, Lake Chatfield, and Waterton Canyon.

I'd say a fair number of trails are kid friendly there, and the scenery's gorgeous (much better than in these pictures). But the trail we took today? Not so much, that particular trail's a bit on the grueling climb side, or at least the middle-third is, where you gain 1000 feet or so.

fun hike
Yeah, weather was nice, and it was a good hike. I'll need to go back there again :)
