Hiking the High Country on Snow in Mid June!
- Two young people and their new hiking friend came off the Continental Divide Trail at Wolf Creek Pass and down to Pagosa Springs for a break from the trail. Stacy Boone was on duty at the overlook as a volunteer tourism ambassador at the time and welcomed them to Pagosa Springs. I found them talking and discovered that they were having a terrific adventure hiking the high country. The wonderful thing about the Pagosa area is, once you are a few steps down any one of dozens of trails you are off on your own adventure.
- From their blog;
- We are: wanderers, love to learn new skills, have short attention spans in cities and real patience watching wildlife.
We have worked in: outdoor education, trail building, as naturalists, as wranglers, as horsepackers, farriers, in ski racing, photography, editorial writing, graphics design, professional cooking, construction and as warriors with wrenches and sewer thawing equipment for jobs as caretakers.
We are responsible for : a welsh corgi and a gimpy red heeler, two mustangs, two quarter horses and a thoroughbred (pasture pet anyone?) who have often worked with us whether or not they always wanted to.
Our families are awesome, and have been support, pit crew, rescuers, editors and always there for us.
Our favorite places are: often the ones that few people want to visit (the deserts of Nevada for instance), or places without trails, or places we haven’t seen yet in person.
We are suckers for: Pixar movies, good audio books, our own elk steak and chocolate (Nikki is the chocolate fiend)
