TR: Dry Gulch 7/3/2010


My mom's birthday was July 3rd, so I went for a hike with her and her two dogs, Kali (a golden retriever mix) and Pepper (an akita and border collie mix). We chose Dry Gulch, which I've spent a good bit of time in during the winter since it's the next valley over from my home ski resort, Loveland. But, I had never been up there in the summer. It wound up being a good choice, as we only saw one group of people, a rarity in the Colorado Front Range on a holiday weekend!

The dogs, of course, had the most fun.

The dogs enjoyed all the little side creeks.
