The answers to all those questions proved to be yes. The run was amazing, and while I haven't yet attempted to check out the book, I assume that the librarians in the People's Republic of Boulder will understand that the only way to read The Audacity of Hope is 100% commando. Anyway, today's run traveled up to the Continental Divide, providing an exquisite glimpse into the beauty of Colorado, and also the great gifts of nature. I want to use this blog post to take you on a journey up the trail, with nothing but curiosity and a camera.
The ran began at Hessie Trailhead outside of Nederland (20 miles from Boulder) with a slowly ascending trail alternating between meadow and forest.
