Unfortunately I had my camera on some manual settings that were totally inappropriate and didn't realize it until the middle of the hike so even though I had a beautiful sunny day that any moron could take stunning pictures in I managed to take pictures that came out all black. And of course they were the best shots of the rock formations. But I caught a few shots on the way back on a different trail after I fixed the settings.
This is the bottom of Mt. Sanitas, not the Red Rocks formations
Lola having a roll around at Eben G. Fine Park which is right next to the Red Rocks area.
My neck and back are still bothering me from the car crash so the chiropractor banned me from going on any steep rocky trails since bombing down a rocky trail will make my neck worse so I grudgingly headed out for the Boulder Creek Path on my bike. I normally barely notice it because if I'm on it it's to get to or from a ride that goes higher up the canyons. Then I realized how spoiled I am because it is a pretty trail. Below are photos of the Elephant Buttress climbing area which is the south boundary of the Dome Fire. Again, I was there a week before the fire started. The fire is behind these rocks and since I'm not a climber I'm not sure if you can see Dome Rock from the trail or if it's behind on the Open Space where the fire is burning. Currently it's fully contained but I don't think it's completely out. I drove past the area yesterday and the trails over there were still closed due to the fire.
Elephant Buttress. If you look closely you can see a climber.
I suppose there are worse places I could ride to rehab an injury.
Edited to add:
Turns out I did have a photo of the Dome
Weird that I was out taking pictures a few days before the fire. I can't remember the last time I was on the Boulder Creek Path, it's probably been at least a year or two. And I haven't been to Red Rocks in maybe 10 years even though it's 10 minutes away.
