One of my favorite hikes of the year was up to Rogers Peak Lake and Heart Lake. At 8.7 miles round-trip it was one of the longest hikes we did. The views were stunning. We started at Moffat tunnel near Rollinsville and had a picnic near the lakes.
Another great hike was one we did in July down in Pike's Peak National Forest. This one took us up to a beaver pond. Maybe next year we'll go camping up here and get even farther.
In autumn we went to see the leaves on the aspens change colors.
