Before packing up to go home I wanted to get some miles in on the trails.
Hartman Rocks has amazing trails for mountain bikers and runners. Some were a technical above my comfort level (double black diamond).
I figure this is good training for a half marathon in the San Juans, I don’t think that terrain will be easy either.
The kids joined me for the last bit of my run, they love to trail run!
When I got back we needed to pack up to head home.
I love going on gondola rides up in the mountains and since the weather was nice we decided that today would be the day that we would ride to the top of Monarch Mountain.
The kids and I were getting ready to go up the gondola when we saw that the trails were open. Instead of riding up with us Cory decided to ride his mountain bike to the top. What a great mid drive way to get some movement!
At over 12,000 ft I was impressed with his climbing skills.
The rest of the day was spent driving home, stoping for playgrounds and iced coffees along the way.
