Hiking without knowing where the heck you’re going is my one of my favorite things to do (ill-advised though it may be). On my last trip to Colorado, the game plan was to drive toward some tall mountains and see what happened. We ended up in Idaho Springs, a quaint old mining town, then winded our way even higher up towards a few trails.
All I wanted was to get to a peak, and peak we did on Chief Mountain. It was breathtaking with otherworldly rock formations and sweeping views. I just stood there and watched a storm roll in. It was perfect–a sight I’ll never forget.
I was in Colorado back in 2011 and I remember that place from the first photo, so cool!
Oh really?! That’s great! It’s so cool to see pieces of history like that.

Great photos! The view reminds me of Oregon, have you ever been? The Gorge is the best place for a a hike! All but a few of them lead to a peak and a great view.
I have been and I adore it there! The Gorge is so beautiful! Is that where you live?
