I’ve been aching to get my hiking boots on a trail since we didn’t get to hike as much in wet Colorado as we thought we would, but this hike was so hard, I was reconsidering that need quickly! This picture is of the Taos valley as we are coming back down the trail. It was in the 80’s, and so dry, we were sucking down the water. The trail went straight up for over a mile, then was rolling hills until the top of Devisadaro Mtn. I still don’t know if it was the altitude or the hike that had me huffing and puffing, but who cares, it was a beautiful hike.
