Dome Rock State Wildlife Area
I decided to skip work and go hiking at the Dome Rock State Wildlife Area. This is about an hour outside of Colorado Springs. It's also a weekday, and it's very very cold, so I hope to see few people.



at around 9600 feet
I'm not sure how could it was, but the snow was very squeeky. However, as soon as the sun came out it warmed up considerably. In fact, throughout the day as I found myself alternating between shade and sunlight I noticed a good twenty degree swing in temperature.



how to ruin scenery
How many houses can you count?



mule deer
This hike I attempted to use my phone to take pictures rather than my camera. For the most part it took better pictures, but it turns out that it has no real zoom. So all of my closeups of these deer are rather pixelated.



beaver dams
There were a lot of them. The trail also crossed creeks a number of times. For the most part the creeks were frozen enough to walk on without breaking through. For the most part.
