food (of course!) travel, portraits & nature photos. Living in Telluride, CO there is always an opportunity to embrace the outdoors & all it’s beauty. The Bear Creek Trail is a hike (or as the locals call it a walk). It’s fun to walk & snowshoe this throughout the year. The different seasons offer very different experiences. Here is Bear Creek as alive as it can get… With summer blooms… Hikers from near & far… A rock garden enchants…people gaze in awe & add to the sculptures. And the waterfalls abundantly flow… You can hike 2.5 miles to the falls (about 45 minutes) or beyond. Way beyond…Wasatch Trail will take you about 6-8 hours to complete. With a maximum elevation of 13,050. The trail is wide & it’s easy to find your way to the top. I wear bright shoes that make me smile! There are also turnoffs here & there so you can tuck into little spaces to reflect, picnic & frolic. Lovers, friends & families have etched their names in Aspens through the years. Après hike I stopped at Over the Moon & enjoyed Lobster Salad & cucumber DRY soda… I’m in NY now & I’m looking forward to my hike when I return. The leaves have started to change, new photos will be taken and lots of smiles to be had. We now have Moose puppy too, so he will be sure to hike with. Links to Love!
