Stanley Canyon

Starting to kick things back into high gear this month and rack up some miles. Took the wife with me today and we did Stanley Canyon. Interesting fact, if you are not on the list at the Air Force Academy you can’t get in until 8am. Wasn’t too bad we only had to wait about 15 minutes.

I think is one of my favorite trails. It is very steep and technical and not sure why I don’t do it more often. I took my full overnight hiking pack today so that adds about 35 pounds. We hiked up to the lake or what I would call a pond. Worked our way around the lake and took a break and had an apple and a lemon izzie.

I am not sure if fishing is allowed or not. I did see a guy fishing and didn’t see any NO Fishing signs.

Headed out tomorrow to walk up High Drive and then down Captain Jacks.
