Hike #6 -- The Wind Caves

Here are the photos I took on my hike to the Wind Caves today. I'm scheduled to take a hike on Saturday, but the weather looks bad, so I went TODAY!

This is the trailhead -- submerged in spring run off.

I had to cross this drainage stream at the beginning of the hike. And, yes, I got my shoes wet. But it didn't seem to bother my feet. They stayed nice and happy the whole time.

This is, from left to right, Caitlin Campbell and Anna Sharar of the Conservation Corps. There were a number of other Conservation Corps employees also scattered along the trail constructing water bars to prevent trail erosion. Thanks for all your hard work! They deserve the credit for well maintained trails.

This is the view from a top the Wind Caves looking south. Love those mountains!

And this is an actual photo of the wind caves. True to form, it was windy as well.

I'm also back to walking and hiking after a brief hiatus. Your photos are majestic, Christie!

(P.S. I hope you'll stop by my cow blog, La Vache Interessante, soon!)

Awesome pics! Okay, when school is out, I want you to let me come on one of the scheduled hikes. Mostly it's to see how wimpy I truly am and to motivate me to get moving. Thanks for being so dedicated.
