Getting lost in the rocky mountain hills of Chandler Park

I grew up just a few miles down the road and used to love going to summer camp here until I was about 11 years old. Today I’m exploring a new area of the park.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference”

No cairns on these trails–just meandering up and down the rocks20130411-152234.jpg

Perhaps someone was celebrating their new flatscreen or had an Office Space moment??20130411-152250.jpg


I miss seeing these and trying to figure out what animals match these cute little paw prints. I’m always on the prowl for cougar prints:)20130411-152928.jpg
