A beautiful day for a hike in Colorado, and we found our best trail yet! Grey Rock is located in the eastern section of the Poudre Canyon. It is quite popular, in part, because it is one of the first trails that you run into after turning on rt 14, but even more so, because it is simply spectacular. The opening photo is the approach to the summit, after about 2 miles of hiking…
The approach to the trailhead:

Elevation is right around 7600 feet with an elevation gain of nearly 1900 feet. We met some nice folks along the way… and now we are enjoying lunch at the Howling Cow Cafe… life sure is good in Colorado!
