Green Mountain

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. 
Beautiful day. 
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.

  1. For some reason I kept expecting to see sheep on the hills in the background of those pictures. Had to keep reminding myself that not every picture of you on a hill is in England...
