Wordless Wednesday - Hiking and the Effects of Forest Fire

This week the boys and I decided to go hiking.  We went to Morrow Mountain about an hour from where we live.  We decided to do the Fall Mountain trail because it was moderate and 4.1 miles.  What a great hike!  The most interesting part was seeing the forest coming back two years after a major forest fire there.  I wouldn't say it was all beautiful, but it was a lesson for all of us on how nature battles back.  The park is actually gorgeous - see last pic!  This was just the area affected.  So glad we got to see this - it was a fun adventure and we got a better appreciation for what my home state of Colorado will be going through in the next couple years.
