When I am not in my studio creating new pieces, I enjoy outdoor activities in Colorado. Living in the front range is ideal for me, as there is such easy access to the mountains. Last week-end I took a hike in Aiken Canyon, which is on Nature Conservancy land just twenty miles south of Colorado Springs, on highway 115. The trail is an easy 4.5 mile loop, in a peaceful canyon where wildlife is abundant.
This picture was taken in late September on a hike to Dome Rock in Teller County. Again a four mile loop, but this one with more elevation, and wonderful views. The trail head is just past Mueller State Park, on highway 67.
