|Horsetooth Falls. Seems like a smidge more water than last weekend, tough to tell.
|Passing by the Wathen turnoff today and continuing on to Towers trail and on to West Ridge, which I've never hiked.
|Spring Creek trail past Wathen turnoff, hazy but gorgeous views to the south-east.
|(zoomed a little) Boyd and Horseshoe Lakes in the distance.
|Now a nice view of Horsetooth Reservoir too.
|Intersection of West Ridge and Towers. Never been here before!
|Right on schedule, the towers (antennas).
|West Ridge has gorgeous views to the west -- looking west-southwest to Longs on the right side. Note topless tree in center.
|Looking further left (topless tree is to the right).
|Looking further left, nearly straight south - the teeth of Horsetooth Rock.
|Snow! This is ~7000 feet elevation, end of March, on a north-facing shaded area. I only saw one other small patch of snow the entire hike (~8 miles)
|Still on West Ridge looking east to Horsetooth Reservoir and Fort Collins.
|Looking south-east to Boyd and Horseshoe lakes again.
|Looking up at the Teeth.
|Now they look more like teeth.
|Thanks ladies of Team B.O.B. (babes on bikes) for keeping our trails clean!
|Just like last week... hiked miles and miles to the unpopulated areas of Horsetooth Park, and do I see deer? No. But next to the parking lot, a whole herd.
|A lot of them looked at me but nobody moved.
|Parking lot off to the left middle. I tell ya, you don't need to leave the parking lot to see deer.
