Hidden Depths

May 28, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Thousands of people visit the high country each year to enjoy the natural beauty of the wilderness and the architecture of former mining towns. Roads such as the Million Dollar Highway and the Silver Thread Scenic Byway offer stunning views, and there are many ATV trails to explore, but I can't think of a better way to experience Colorado than on foot.



Hiking allows the backcountry to be viewed at a slower place, which means that the rich details of a landscape are not missed. Instead of an alpine meadow, the intricate composition of an individual bloom can be seen. Instead of a ghost town, the axe marks of the original builder can be studied.



Such 'little things' are the fabric of our world.
