Hiking in Golden, Colorado

This past Saturday, Rachel and I went on a hike in Golden, Colorado in Golden Gate Canyon State Park.  We were looking for a somewhat challenging trail and found it with the Burro trail.  The hike included a side trip to Windy Peak trail which provided a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains and downtown Denver.  Total mileage for the hike was 6.4 miles and both Rachel and I were pretty exhausted after reaching the bottom.  Since we are both not acclimated to the altitude, we made a lot of pit stops to catch our breath and drink fluids.  Our goal while together in Denver was to do something active and get out of downtown Denver and this hike provided just that.  It was great to spend time with Rachel and do something we both enjoy but don't do often enough - hike in the mountains.  I posted some photos.

I think it may have been more than 6.4 miles. You look so cute in your hat, dear. That was a fun hike.
