West Mag-nificent

Finally a nice weekend day with sunshine and no dog agility so that means a trip up to the West Magnolia trails above the mountain town of Nederland.

I think I'm the only person on the planet who can somehow manage to look dorky riding a mountain bike on beautiful singletrack trails.

All this lovely singletrack just a 40 minute drive away.

Shoshone Trail heading through beautiful meadows that are normally full of wildflowers and I thought they'd be particularly spectacular what with the ridiculous amount of rain we've been getting but I think it's a bit early in the season for this windy meadow up at around 9000'.

View of the Continental Divide from the parking lot.

Pretty wildflowers.

I was at an agility fun match this morning but that will have to wait for another post.


  1. What beautiful scenery! Must have been a really nice trail!

  2. It is indeed a beautiful trail. If only there were more nice weekends in the year to enjoy it.

  3. Lovely! Colorado's a great place for looking at and being on mountains.
