Very easy hike; more of a walk. Beautiful, though! We got there early on a Saturday & there weren’t a lot of people.

Ok yes this is really more "sightseeing" than "hiking". But it is one of my new favorite spots in Colorado! It's absolutely beautiful and interesting. You can't take a bad photo here.

It's more of a playground than a hike...I'll go back when there's ice in the ice caves!
