Colorado does not usually have much moisture in the air. Sure, we get snow and rain sometimes, and some areas of the state get more moisture than others. The Front Range however, does not as a rule generally hold onto wetness. I could count on one hand the mornings in any given year that I’ve woken up to see fog.
We’re heading to the Coal Creek Trail in Louisville due to the snow and ice from the previous two days. The Coal Creek Trail is gravel and has very moderate ups and downs. It can be accessed from a variety of places in Louisville and Lafayette, and can be whatever distance you’re looking for because it’s always an out-and-back. In other words– boring.
Karley arranged our annual, un-official Turkey Trot. Seven A.M. at Doudy Draw, we’d do the new loop that was just completed this summer around the top of the mesa off of Highway 93. The weather was supposed to be cold, rainy and/or snowy, but the moisture never materialized.
