It’s been a wet summer in the Colorado mountains and the weather hasn’t been too reliable for mountain climbing. This weekend was no exception. There was the option of climbing a mountain on this hike, but with the clouds rolling in and the winds kicking up, my wife and I decided just to hike to the lake. The trail that runs up scenic Herman Gulch gradually climbs through the forest, while running parallel with a creek, taking you above tree line to crystal clear Herman Lake (a six-mile round trip).
Current Thoughts…Anyone who uses the derogatory terms "Greenie" or "Treehugger" to describe people who care about the environment should not be trusted or respected. If you try to reason with such a person you are just wasting your time. The only thing you can hope for is that such a person has a short life and end their destructive influence of ignorance on the world.
