Elk Meadow - Meadow View Loop - Easy

This one just felt...sublime. Easy run on the trails with a good friend. Marveling at the fact that in mid-August Elk Meadow is still green. 

Time:  47 minutes
Distance: 5.09 miles
Effort: Easy
Body: Good
Weather: Sunny & still warm

Another easy jog around the Meadow View loop in Elk Meadow Open Space. This time with DW, a good friend and former neighbor. Hung at the parking lot imbibing a Ska Brewing Company Modus Hoperendi and watching the runners, hikers and bikers returning to the parking lot. 

All is right in the world.


  1. Nice, Jim! Bottle that one and bring it to Manitou on Saturday.

  2. Mmmm... Hoperandi, which along with Deschutes Inversion are always in the fridge. Heading to Durango next week for time off, and I plan to enjoy the many great local brews :)

    Nice header photo; reminds me of CO Monument on the northeast.

  3. GZ - Indeed...see you Sunday.

    MTR2 - have a great trip to Durango. Great part of the state. The pic above was taken last week in Labyrinth Canyon on the Green River. The sun was setting, striking the canyon walls beyond our campsite just right...

  4. Jim - Them folks in Durango know how to make some fine beer. Check out their brewery if you're ever done there. Zia's Mexican as thier food choice makes for a fun visit.

    Have a great weekend down in Manitou. Looking forward to seeing you hammer both races!
