Trails - T-33a & Park Creek

Heading south from Fort Collins to north Loveland we have a nice view to the west/southwest of Longs Peak  (14,259 ft) right and, I believe, Mt. Meeker (13,911 ft), left.

Nearing Lyons - another view of Longs Peak.

Starting up the Saint Vrain canyon just soutwest of Lyons CO.

Kayaker making use of the high water flow.

A temporary / replacement bridge (from the Fall 2013 flood) to a house hidden behind the rock.

At the Camp Dick campground, driving over the Middle St. Vrain creek.

Starting out from the South trailhead of Bunce School Road

A couple last "views out" from Bunce.

At the T-33a plane crash site we can hike up 60 yards to climb a rock for another wide "view out".

A nice mix of pine and aspen trees.

Starting out with the Park Creek trail

Water was nicely flowing.
The smell of pine, song of birds, flow from the creek...
...later in the day a light rain shower with lightning and thunder - nicely appreciated.


Up near the end of Park Creek - right about 10,000 ft elevation - we find some snow pockets

and some trees across the trail. Out pops the chain saw to clear the trail - only to find the trail stop shortly after the trees.
