I Like Thursday #80 - a new hike

I've posted before that DH and I enjoy hiking, especially the popular "urban" hikes in our area that are part of city and county open spaces.  We found a new spot in Boulder the other day that I wanted to share with you for my likes this week.

This is Colorado at the end of April - hints of green wherever you look.  The trees are starting to leaf out - sometimes you can see it, sometimes you can't!

This hike goes around a little lake, right up to the foothills, and in between some residential neighborhoods with funky Boulder houses.

One of these was for sale, for only $775,000!  Yikes!

We saw several hang gliders soaring along the ridge as we walked.

Evidently this is a popular spot for that activity!

Beautiful views and blue, blue sky - this is what I love about Colorado!

The way back to the car took us through a neighborhood, and I had to share this fun mailbox!

LeeAnna, you need one of these!

Happy Thursday, friends!  Hope you're having a great week!  Hope you will join us at Not Afraid of Color for all the I Like Thursday posts.

I love a good hike, this area must be really pretty when it greens up.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

aren't the prices of houses crazy in some places! the hike looks really pretty reminds me of an area we walked through on one of our many trips in Colorado - I think the one I am thinking of might have been in Steamboat Springs - we were only over-nighting in the area so I might have it confused with another spot

That does look like the perfect mailbox for LeeAnna. lol. What a beautiful area. It must look so lush when it's all in bloom/leaf.

Sometimes you see it, sometimes you don't - I get that. Looking out the back window, my eyes can see the aspens leafing out, but I don't think my phone camera could catch the subtlety! Have a great weekend!!!
