Spring has finally fully arrived in Northern Colorado, and I took the opportunity to explore the upper level of Lory State Park. I had already filmed the lower part back in January: Lory State Park (Part 1) – In A Colorado Minute (Week 195).
this time of year you can find a running stream, colorful spring
flowers and lots of grasshoppers and butterflies. The trail takes you
from about 5,000 feet up to 7,000 feet in only 1.7 miles. So it can be a
challenging hike. The last bit of rocks you have to climb have only
recently been arranged into a rather naturally looking “staircase” –
even Whiskey with her rather short legs makes that last climb look very
