Haven't been on the site since probably April, maybe even longer.

That said, I'm sick of summer already.

Was in CO last week and am always amazed how much hotter (more hot?) Denver is than the mountains.

It was very hot in June, but since the early season fires and that lame stuff, the summer has been pretty nice. Nights have been cool as of late with nice mornings. I am enjoying my bike commute these days. It just seems to take less effort with the temps. Mountain biking has been a blast too.

For those of you who haven't checked it out, Stauton State park is pretty amazing. Went mountain biking there last Sunday and the scenery is just outstanding. The trails are easy to ride, but steep in spots. About 16 miles in all, so easy enough to do it all in one day. The looks nice and the rock climbing looks to be pretty good too. Same type of rock as you find at Devil's Head. Super featured, lots of chicken heads, incuts, and that sort of thing. The Elk Falls Overlook is not to be missed.

Park just opened in May, so it hasn't quite caught on yet. Not many hikers and even less people or bikes or horseback. Quite a change from the other spots around.

i70 is functional, but 285 is magical. So many epic secret spots for summer and winter, I get all giddy any chance I have to head out on it. And the goods start from just out of town all the way down.

G, what's the dog situation at that park? Leashes suck

You do need to have your dog on a leash on that one. That is a bit of a drawback in that regard. The thing is you have to hike quite a bit on multi use trails. All of those or double wide, and on a bike you can haul some serious ass. So a dog off leash, might not be such a good thing. I think on the hiking only trails, you could risk letting pooch off leash. Same goes for the Elk Overlook hike from the lake. The climb is pretty steep, but it's fire road. So there is plenty of space to avoid collisions and that sort of thing. We were the only bikers who went up there anyway. Probably not a lot of two wheel traffic in that spot.

I wish the snowboarding off of 285 was better. For summer hiking and biking it is a pretty fantastic area. The S'Platte is one of my favorite regions in Colorado.
