Devil’s Backbone

Devil's Backbone

A morning of bold March sunshine, bluebird skies, and mild temperatures coaxes me outdoors in search of new places to wander. Loveland for me remains rather unexplored, so I choose to visit a park on the western outskirts of town: Devil’s Backbone Open Space. My energy is low (it seems I failed to eat enough for breakfast) so before my hike I stop in for a top-up meal at The Village Inn. I order up a plateful of scrambled eggs, pancakes (a rare indulgence), and sausage links. Perfect fuel for a hike that (if I chose to venture the entire length of the trail) stretches 12 miles long.

Today’s forecast was chock-full of snow flurries and grim temperatures which meant that many hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park were likely to be treacherous.

Another week is underway and again I find myself knee-deep in duties and deadlines without having been able to fully enjoy a weekend to myself.
