mule deer
I decided to go hiking at a place called Waldo Canyon‎. It was only about 15 minutes outside of Colorado Springs. In fact, for about half the hike I could actually see Colorado Springs in the distance. Even so, right away I kicked this deer up off the trail. As I mentioned before, my camera has seen better days.

Pikes Peak
Pikes Peak in the distance.

I really need a new camera. The Waldo Canyon trail is between 6 and 7 miles long depending on where you read about it. It is heavily used. I was passed by three runners going up hill. This is around 8000 feet and cold. They are tougher than me. I also met a number of people on mountain bikes. Again, those people are tougher than me as well.

Colorado Springs
I can see my hotel from here. In Colorado the mountains end abruptly. The steam you see is from a power plant.
