Niwot Loop Trail

Niwot Loop Trail

I found the Niwot Look Trail by accident. Last week, I was driving along Mineral Road on my way to Boulder and the evening light was so beautiful that I pulled off on side road so I could stop and take a picture. The side road I pulled off on was 79th Street and it so happens that right there, after turning from Mineral Road onto 79th Street, sits the Niwot Loop Trailhead.

By the time we got to Zion National Park, I had racked-up what I can only characterize as a rather measly post-op hiking record. I had completed just two modest hikes, both of which had left me entirely wiped me out.

It snowed in the high country last night so today I cleared my schedule and drove up into the mountains to get a closer look at this season’s first snow.
