Nature Hike

Saturday, we were able to take my mom and dad to one of our favorite close places to hike - Cheyenne Canon Park. From this particular hiking trail, you get a bird's eye view of Colorado Springs and 20 steps later a breathtaking sight of the mountains going on forever with a sprinkling of waterfalls and rivers. Both Mom and Dad were amazed at the views that we get of the mountains just minutes from our house. The hike goes up about 600 feet in elevation over one mile - not easy to do when you're not used to the thin air! We had a really great time and can't wait to show them more hiking trails if they come out in the summer (as promised - hint, hint!). But how great is it that two days after Thanksgiving we can be in the mountains hiking? Aaaahhhhh... bliss!
