Hall Ranch, Lyons, CO

Hall Ranch, Lyons, Colorado

Steve & I like to hike at Hall Ranch in Lyons. We can get to the trailhead in about 15 minutes from our house in Longmont. Many people hike, bike and ride their mountain bikes on the trails. Dogs are not allowed on the trails. There are signs posted at the trailhead to watch out for mountain lions. There are also rattlesnakes. Yesterday I did the loop trail throught the ranch. I always take my camera! I was really frustrated (and still am) because my camera doesn't seem to be working quite the way I like it to! I took a gorgeous picture of a blooming cactus and some really pretty wildflowers, before realizing that the camera wasn't working. I am going to have to figure out the problem. Hopefully I don't have to buy a new camera! Most of you know how manyy pictures I take!!! The hike was really nice! I did see two snakes! I also saw eagles and deer. I rarely hike by myself, but it was actually really nice. I ran into other hikers and many mountain bike riders. We were all out enjoying the nice Colorado Spring weather! I will post a few of the pictures that actually did turn out! So I really don't just hang out with my kids and grandkids! Hiking, traveling and taking pictures are high on my list of things I love to do!
