Hiking | Seven Bridges Trail

drive to the trail headA few weeks ago Pat and I hiked the seven bridges trail. The drive up to the trail head was beautiful. We passed Helen Hunt falls on the way there.  Helen Hunt FallsThe trailhead starts at the gate to Gold Camp road and the first 0.7 miles of the trail is along this dirt road. The view from here is pretty cool!Seven Bridges View of the roadIt looks down on the road you drive up to get to the trailhead. After the 0.7 miles on Gold Camp Road you’ll come to a trail marker for trail 622, we took that trail and came to this sign.Trail marker

Shortly after this sign we crossed the first bridge. Yes, there are seven bridges total. We counted on the way back! This trail keeps going to Jones Park, we turned around shortly after the last bridge. Seven Bridges ViewWe stopped here to enjoy the view, eat lunch, and turn around. Overall, this hike was really easy and fun, just 4.7 miles round trip! We definitely want to try more hikes in Cheyenne Canyon.


Embracing Change!

IMG_20130615_092129_516 (2)It’s official! We are moving to Colorado Springs in just two short months, and I can’t wait. I am so excited to see what this big adventure has in store for us. This was just a dream for so long and now it is actually happening.

I’m so looking forward to a change of pace and getting out of this rut. Lately we’ve been so busy at work that we’ve been in a rut of going to work, getting some chores done around the apartment and not much lot else. This move will be a great opportunity for Pat and I to just have more fun! We will have a whole new area to explore together.

I am also excited to have more time for this blog and all of my creative projects. It’s been hard to balance everything and I always feel like I’m behind. It will be nice to get a break for a while.

I’m trying really hard to focus more on the excitement of this big adventure and less on what we are leaving behind.

This move is good for us, really good.
