Morning Hikes

Monday, February 10, 2014

Hello all,

 

For those of you from around the country who may not have been paying as close of attention to the weather, for the past week Boulder has been freezing. For about 4 or 5 days in a row temperatures hovered in the single digits, and crossed into the negatives more than once. Now, for my warmer weather readers, don't fret. This type of weather pattern is abnormal and even through it all, we were still getting a remarkable amount of sunshine.

 

However, the cold front perfectly coincided with "sick" season, which meant that some of my professors were ending out emails cancelling classes because they were too ill to lead a lecture.

 

So, I capitalized on my extra hours. Last week, after a cancelation, I successfully rallied my two roommates to hike the first Flatiron.

 

We set out from the Chautauqua trailhead, and while the trail was snowy and slick, we were properly bundled and had no significant difficulties. The ability to pull off adventures like these on short notice is one of my favorite parts of Boulder, here are the pics:

Stay warm folks!
