Conifer Disc Golf

This is the first tee.... see the basket alllllll the way up there? Heckuva climb! 1/2 way up my legs said WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Such a beautiful day - mountains - blue sky - and lots of trees... so glad I don't actually play disc golf and can just hike and watch! (and of course ooooooo and ahhhhhh at Furry Husband's disc prowess like a good wife-y)

Another basket through all the pines... do you see it?
Me and The Toe....

Oh, the wildflowers were gorgeous...Colorado Bluebells, Indian Paintbrush, Penstemon, Yarrow, Alpine Daisies, Columbine... everywhere. Toe was hot but I made him lie in a sunny patch with Indian Paintbrush for a pix... I love that there are little pine cones scattered at his feet. Such a CO setting... Colorado Toe!

Furry Husband, disc golf bag and Toe-ster....

There was one little hole in the ground potty mid-way through the course and being who I am, I take every opportunity to pee when it presents itself!
I walked in and a little bird flew out a hole in the window. I stood on the box covering the hole in the ground because I suspected....
And lookit! How cute!

After 20 baskets of disc golf, we were all hot... Toe refreshed in a mountain stream ...

And it makes him have funny, skinny, chicken wing legs!


We packed a lunch and had a picnic before heading back down the mountain. Once home, a little storm blew in and by 7pm it was gone. I saddled up my mare and had a wonderful ride. I'd say it was a PERFECT start to our vacation!

That sounds like a perfect day- I'm jealous! I haven't been hiking in ages and it's too hot to go right now. Ugh.

"Chicken legs"- I say that to my dog all the time because his back legs really do look like meaty chicken legs. I promise I won't try to eat him.

Heather - completely!

Whiskey - maybe chicken leg dogs would taste better than babies? heh heh

What a beautiful place. You, Furry and Toe all look healthy and happy.
I don't know what disc golf is!
