A little chilly out there today. My friend and I started at the Lost Dog Trailhead and hiked to the top of Sunrise Peak where we had our late lunch of crackers and tangerines. It was a bit hazy out so not great for photography; but that didn't stop me. We watched the fountain and then made our way back. We dawdled here and there, thus the long hike time.
The trail is great and so close. There were only 5 other hikers and 3 or 4 people on their bikes. It is a long grade up but nothing too severe or heart palpatating. We were surprised at the lack of wildlife; especially birds. It seemed unusually quiet except for the sounds of jets flying over now and again. Nonetheless, I did get the mandatory bird photo from afar.
|For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination. |
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
