February definitely had its share of ups and downs. With snow falling on a consistent basis throughout the month, it proved to be somewhat difficult to get some good quality hiking done. Nonetheless, I still found a way to make it happen and explore nature and even have a close encounter with a group of Bighorn Sheep. Here’s a quick recap of what I was up to in February 2019 along with some of my best photos:
Waterton Canyon to Bear Creek on Colorado Trail: 17.5 Miles on February 10th
Bear Creek Trail: 12.1 Miles on February 16th
Waterton Canyon: 6 Miles on February 17th
Matthews/ Winters Park: 5.1 Miles on February 26th
Total February Hiking Mileage: 40.7 Miles
Year to Date Hiking Mileage: 83.28 Miles
While February felt like it was the longest 28 days ever, the month of March and the beginning of spring will hopefully bring more opportunities to get outside more to do some good quality hiking! However, I don’t want to be too optimistic considering the fact that both March and April are usually the snowiest months of the year in the Denver area. Regardless of whatever the weather conditions are, I’m looking forward to warmer weather and more exciting adventures ahead!
