“Sounds of Silence” hike


There are several very nice hiking trails in Dinosaur National Park.  One, called “Sounds of Silence”, is only 3 miles from our camp site.  Yesterday we walked it, about 4 miles long and VERY varied terrain.  In fact, this variety is what makes this country side so interesting.  Take a look at the pictures below.

Start of the trail, rock formations ahead

A look at the trail ahead, Split Mountain on the horizon

Even the desert has its blooms

A variety of colors as well

Some of the trail was in clay hills

We believe this to be a cougar print; about 4" across

Don't slip, it's a long way down!

Some of the trail required scrambling

A very pleasant hike indeed.  We’ll have to do it again!
