Yesterday I found myself hiking one of the many trails on Blodgett Peak in Colorado Springs. This tree was one of the countless burned by the Waldo Canyon Fire that swallowed over 18,000 acres three years ago.
The trails were surrounded by healthy growth, though pieces of burnt wood started becoming more visible further up the mountain. It wasn’t too long before the trail began winding through burnt trees, some still growing strong despite the damage, and others laying in the returning brush.
There were many photographs taken during this one hike, as the peak is surrounded by gorgeous forests. Although mostly pine, there are plenty of other beautiful trees turning gold for the fall!
The peak is 2500 ft. high, which sounds like an easy challenge, as well as practice for scaling Pike’s Peak. I’m terribly excited to try and reach the summit my next visit.
Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
