Cool Weather, At Last

We have now left Utah for Colorado and cool weather!  Last night it got down to at least 45 degrees and the heat in the trailer ran frequently. 

We are staying at Steamboat Lake State Park, near Steamboat Springs.  The Lake is really lovely:

There isn’t really any hiking in the Park, so we drove out to the National Forest and hiked to the top of Hahn’s Peak.  It was a beautiful hike and the view from the top was really spectacular:

You can see in the photo the rock that makes up the top of the mountain.  It was the strangest thing … We had read somewhere that miners in the area had cut down all the trees and left the top bald but we weren’t expecting Just Rock!

Miles Hiked:  4.5
Total Miles Hiked:  188.5
