Alcove Nature Trail

Christmas Day | Friday , December 25, 2009

It was a great morning for a hike. I wanted to get out of the house for a little while this morning and try out my new Merrell Snowmotion boots. When we were at the Colorado National Monument last Sunday, I remembered noticing that the Alcove Nature Trail near the Visitor’s Center was covered with snow and no one had been on it yet. Since I have never hiked that short trail yet, I figured it would be a good place to test them out.

My new boots performed great

I was a good way to start the day. I’m hoping to get out tomorrow and get a little snowshoeing in 😉
