guanella pass, again

the house we are renting in georgetown is right off the guanella pass road, so it’s an easy trip up the road for a hike. from where the road is closed to the top is 2 miles, so a nice 4 mile total. sounds easy, and it is, once you stop a couple of times to catch your breath.

95% of the road is still covered in a good amount of snow. if you hike on the packed trail, you’re good. if you step off, you can sink in anywhere from a couple of inches to a couple of feet. the road is lovely at the top. snow free! you forget how nice it is to walk on a hard surface
