Nolan Lake Outside Fulford – A Fun, Moderate Hike


Last weekend, Molly, our 8 year-old lab mix, and I hiked to Nolan Lake south of Fulford outside of Eagle, Colorado. The lake sits about 11,250 ft.

Molly lives to hike.  This was our first true outing this summer so she bounded around like a puppy.  This is a good hike for dogs because there is plenty of water along the trail.

This is a little early to make this hike but with the low snow winter we had the trail was nearly free of snow.  We made it to the lake in a little over an hour but we pushed hard.

The lake was spectacular and views down valley beautiful.  I highly recommend this hike to anyone wanting to make a relatively moderate hike to a high alpine lake.

Vail Valley Annual Highway Clean-up Day – A Fun and Productive Way to Spend the Morning


Kim and I participated in the Vail Valley Annual Highway Clean-up day last Saturday.  What a great way to spend the morning.  We joined the Prudential crew at mile market 156 just west of the Wolcott exit.

It is a little intimidating picking up trash with 18 wheelers wizzing by at 75 MPH.  Most drivers are very courteous and slow down in respect for the workers.

It was also a beautiful day.  You really never know what you are going to find.  Very few treasures but lots of bottles, cans, auto parts, and some unmentionables.

There is a party afterward where everyone shows off their most interesting finds. We came in second this year with our discovery you can see in the photo below.

It was a fun day spent with some great folks.
