Happy Trails.

Summer Vaca in Colorado = Lots of Hiking!

Today's hike of choice: St. Mary's Glacier.

Located just past Idaho Springs, this very short (3/4 mile) hike is gorgeous, easy, and shady.
Fortunately, we had the luxury of a weekday hike, so we were able to enjoy the glacier without the crowds. We were also able to easily find free parking. {St. Mary's is rumored to become quite crowded on weekends.}


Clearly, Susan and I should have brought some snowshoes ... oops.

For those looking for an extra adventure and challenge, bring your skis and tackle that glacier!
For those looking for a great place to camp, this may be worth a try. Flat ground and beautiful views!
