Saturday we went on a hike. The weather was beautiful and after conquering the 2.9 mile loop right by our apartment, we considered ourselves up to something a bit more challenging. According to the internet, the hike was going to be an in-and-out 4.5 miler. Perfect. We ended up doing the loop. It was 6.5 + miles. It was kind of an accident. We were dead.
|On our way up the mountain. We climbed almost 1,000 feet! It was NOT a gradual climb.|
|The top of Green Mountain and the view to the North. The view was definitely worth the climb.|
|The view to the Southwest. Gorgeous. Can you spot the snow caps in the distance?|
|Downtown Denver to my right.|
|FInally heading down (and allllll around the mountain) and realizing that the hike was NOT 4.5 miles.|
|Treated ourselves to some crab to celebrate our survival.|
We have a sweet backyard.
