Three days on the trails in one week, and in March no less! Somebody pinch me.
Another gorgeous blue sky Colorado day, this time at Hall Ranch. Today was like that day in the fall when all the squirrels suddenly go crazy running around gathering their nuts or doing whatever they do except with cyclists instead of squirrels. The road to Lyons is a popular cycling route and today it was solid with big packs of roadies as well as regular folk riding in smaller groups. And Hall Ranch? I've never seen it so busy. Everybody and their granny and their granny's granny was at Hall Ranch. Still, was so nice to be back on the trails.
When I stopped to take a photo a hiker stopped to chat with me and he said of the 45 cyclists that passed him (he was counting), 42 had said hi or thank you for stepping off the trail or acknowledged him in some way. I was happy for that, trail access is a big issue for cyclists and to have positive feedback from a hiker on such a busy day was a very good thing. Now if only the dog people would learn some manners maybe we would be allowed at Hall Ranch. Or at least not get banned from any more trails. But I'm in too good of a mood to start ranting about that.
I'm sure summer, or at least spring, is here to stay.
