Niwot Loop Trail

Niwot Loop Trail

I found the Niwot Look Trail by accident. Last week, I was driving along Mineral Road on my way to Boulder and the evening light was so beautiful that I pulled off on side road so I could stop and take a picture. The side road I pulled off on was 79th Street and it so happens that right there, after turning from Mineral Road onto 79th Street, sits the Niwot Loop Trailhead.

It’s Memorial Day and for today’s hike I decide to return to Lumpy Ridge to hike the Black Canyon Trail. My plan is not elaborate, I only hope to repeat the hike I did two weeks ago along the Black Canyon Trial.

Island in the Sky—a vast slab of rust-tinted sandstone 1,000 feet higher than the surrounding landscape—is not the ideal place to find yourself during a lightning storm.

Recently, a coworker of mine returned from a trip to Greece and shared some of his many wonderful photos with me. There were images of breathtaking Aegean coastlines, scenic gorges, the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the Temple of Zeus.
