After our email banter the previous evening, we decided a little Colorado Trail action was in order. Section 1 is no slouch. Even as an out and back, there's a pretty long climb involved.
The air was pretty still as we made our way up Waterton Canyon to the trailhead. Even with the parking lot nearly full, there weren't many on the trail.
The climb up to Lenny's rest was hot and humid. Well, humid for Colorado.
A short descent from there brought us to the long climb up. Was it worth it? Heck yeh!
We chose not to ride out to the river. We were already pretty toasty and didn't need another rude climb thrown in.
It's hard to believe that with all the fires in the news, this place doesn't look dry at all. In fact, it was almost jungle-like.
Fun times, indeed.
