Close To Home: Random Indian Summer Outings on Trail's "Dexter" and "Perimeter"

 

We don't stop hiking because we grow old, we grow old because we stop hiking...


Yep, it's Restless and Ruthless of "Two Old Broads" Youtube fame (without fortune), the quintessential happy hiker duo from Lovely Ouray, burning up the trails (and calories) at a rate of 30 to 50 miles per week.  If I'm a good boy, they even let me join in the fun.

Still some fall colors lingering along a county backroad up to Dexter Creek...

Ouray's Perimeter Trail is always a nice option when you want a convenient hike...

A week later we are back up to Dexter Creek for a hike. What a difference, all the leaves are gone from aspen trees.







Just killing time in Paradise...

  1. The aspens are so lovely, it's unfortunate that they can't stick around a little longer.

    1. Oh boy...but I can only handle Leaf-Peeper Tourism so long...especially after a long summer of it. The rv parks are almost empty now as snow moves in. Yippee!

      Hope you are well...
