Bergen Peak - Upper Loop - Easy

Time: 1:19
Distance: 8.62 miles
Effort: Easy
Body: Average
Weather: Cloudy & Warm

Late afternoon run from the house, up through the backyard and into Elk Meadow Open Space. Took Sleepy S to the Bergen Peak Trail and ran the upper loop clockwise, coming down Too Long and closing the loop via Meadow View.

Legs felt decent, but the rest of my was only average. Glad to be back in Colorado. Maybe the body just needs a day to readjust to our fabulous climate.

Off to see Lyle Lovett tonight at Red Rocks (for tonight's show it's dubbed "Green Rocks"). Won free tickets via a give-away by the Colorado Conservation Trust, which will have a booth at tonight's concert.  The concert is sponsored by e-Town. Should be a good one.


  1. I'm glad you mentioned the Colorado Conservation Trust; I've been lazily looking around for conservation orgs, and I used to contribute to The Nature Conservancy. I was not aware of the Trust.

    My politics precludes supporting groups that are of the standard environmentalist school, but based on what I do for fun, I think I need to at least consider myself a conservationist and put my money where my feet are :)

    Thanks for the tip.

  2. CO Conservation Trust is a great org, so too is The Nature Conservancy. (I know since I spent the vast majority of my time working there...). Can't go wrong w/ either one. Both doing GREAT work here in Colorado, and in the case of the Conservancy, in every other state in the U.S. and in more than 32 countries around the world.
