Seniors getting high


Today Romola and I hiked at the highest altitude ever… our hike topped out at 12,000 ft.  Actually, it wasn’t TOO bad, we started at 10,600.   The hike took us up above the tree line of Engineer Mountain, between Durango and Silverton.   But it was a very enjoyable 5 miles, and the scenery was just incredible.

We weren't alone, a cowboy took a train of horses up ahead of us (not fun)
