Chapin on a Saturday

    1. My “one trip” was Longs Peak, and I did that in 1979. If you’re talking about the CCY hike, I’ve no plans for that. The best I could do at the moment might be 2 miles on level ground. Of course, Trail Ridge Road affords vistas that even a lot of hikes and peaks can’t provide. Haven’t done that drive recently, but try to do it at least once a year.

    1. If you saw Yosemite, you saw one of the most spectacular places in the country. Can’t say for sure, because I’ve never been there. Given a choice though, I’ll always head for natural wonders, not cities.

    1. I think I heard that Trail Ridge is closing for the season today or tomorrow. It’s been closed intermittently for several weeks due to early snows, and they need to ready the Visitor Center for winter. Old Fall River Road closed about a week ago to auto traffic; bikes and leashed pets will be allowed until November 30.

      1. They let dogs on leashes on Old Fall River at the end of season? Great news – we’ll have to plan for that time frame – does it vary with season’s weather or do you just have to check and keep up? Cool is great for hiking and heavy coated malamutes

      2. At least you’re far enough away to have an excuse. My only excuse is procrastination. I afraid I may have become like a native, taking the park for granted because it’s always there just 90 minutes away.

... and that's my two cents
