(It's that time of year. Too snowy/cold to hike, so I get to show everyone all the hikes I did during the summer : )
On Sunday, May 31, 2009 I did what is becoming an annual late spring/early summer hike. The Lumpy Ridge Loop. Can't remember what Will was doing. Probably climbing boulders at Horsetooth with friends. Anyway, as many of my hikes were, I did it solo. Will did it with me last year. Maybe his fond memories had something to do with him skipping it this year : )
This hike is low enough in elevation to be really nice at this time of the year. It's only an hour away from Fort Collins. And it's doable in my winter weakened condition : ) Around 10 miles in a loop with not an excessive amount of elevation gain/loss. One other big thing is that you do not have to go through the entry fee thing. So, save some money. Of course, I always purchase a National Park years ID since I do a lot of hiking in the park.
