After a late 10:10am start time at the Colder Boulder, felt kinda limited as how I would fit in a hike so late in the day.

Lucky for me, I’ve saved up a few local Boulder hikes in the event of heavy snow/inclement weather late in 2012.  [Hike Challenge 2012 must go on – rain, sleet, snow, lightning strikes or forest fires – right?]  FB friend & former work colleague Leslie D recommended Anne U. White trail early summer because of its wildflowers and multiple water crossings – 30, I think she said.

Perennial water, flowers, abundant natural edibles and shelter attract an array of wildlife including hummingbirds, deer, fox, coyote, bobcat, bear and mountain lion. This gentle trail welcomes individuals of all abilities, families, dogs, trail runners and winter recreation. 

Well…no wildflowers in December but certainly a lot of creek crossings – highlight of this day’s hike.  Nice!

Easy day hike but still 3.2 miles roundtrip – nice add-on after running a 5K.

Happy December!  49 hikes down, only 3 to go!

Praying for snow (December’s historically our 3rd biggest snowfall month, behind March & April) 🙂
