Drive home from West Boulder meadows hike

Howdee all,

Last Saturday we hiked West Boulder meadows. I still have not selected all the photos from the hike.

Here are some photos from the drive back home.

A beautiful site around every corner.

Today we are off to hike Pine Creek Lake…a hike we did a few years back. Charlene and I never made it to the end…another twenty minutes..we were exhausted, Jeff and Tom said it was amazing.

So a few years older and sore calve muscles..I am hoping I can do it.

Give me a push will you!

Wish me luck.


  1. What a lovely series of photographs! Such a gorgeous place. Don't ever let them make fun of you for stopping. Just tell them you want to slow down and enjoy the beauty around you. If that doesn't work, remind them the journey itself is the destination. It's all about fun, and hiking beyond exhaustion is not fun.

  2. Dawn, thanks for providing a year's worth of desktop backgrounds. What absolutely wonderful pix!

  6. Hey Dawn those pictures were beautiful... and I would love to be there hiking with you through those beautiful meadows and mountains... Have Fun and I am pushing you through the next hike☺

    Travel Safe

  7. Whew..what beautiful shots everyone took!! Those are some amazing nice you are able to wisp thru the states and see all these shots of the good ole USA!
    Sounds like you are heading out for a good hike..stock up on those k2 protein drinks and keep that Vit C handy for sore legs..helps to negate the build up of lactic acid in your muscles..which I learned when I took karate wayyyyyy back. Have a good hike and hope you get to the end!!

  8. oh the that new camera.

  9. Montana looks amazing. Will see next summer.

  10. Those photos are simply stunning. And everything's so green! Are they not having the drought over there that we've had all summer? Hmmm, maybe I should rethink my October vacation and head to Montana.

  11. Wow, if the drive was that gorgeous the hike must have been really amazing. Love the double rainbow.
    Good luck on this next hike, I'm pushing if somebody else is pulling. Does seem like you're training for a rim to rim here at the canyon.

  12. Holy moly.......I LOVE that land....(remind me why I live in the suburbs?) Have been catching up...the previous posts are gorgeous...I love the wildflowers...the rocks...everything!

  13. What absolutely gorgeous scenery... I could just inhale it in!!

  14. Great photos Dawn! So peaceful...

  15. Dawn, wonderful pictures, you seem to really capture the colors so wonderfully
