Yesterday Juliet and I went on our 3rd hike of the season. The Lair of the Bear was the name of the trail and while we never saw the Bears or their lairs we did encounter much more snow and mud than we anticipated.
I already have a very high center of gravity so trudging through slush, ice, and mud at steep angles makes me quite nervous carrying $2500 worth of camera. Hence, the pace was slow and once I strapped on my WinterTrax over my shoes, I was on my way; albeit slowly.
Enjoy the shots and let me know if you know any other great (and less snowy) hikes within 20-30 minutes of Denver.
I think I am starting to dial in my newest lens a bit. I will post the other 15 photos on FLICKR this afternoon.
