Today my Aunt Lori came through town on her way back home to Arizona. We hiked Elk Creek Trail, an hour southwest of Alamosa. There was a beautiful meadow and creek along the trail. We didn’t make it to the lakes, but got a good 8.5 mile hike in for the day. Her dog, Grumpy, was so great hiking with her backpack on, it makes me really want a dog to hike the AT next spring.
When we got back to town we had dinner at Calvillos before saying goodbye.
David is spending the weekend at Dawn’s house and we were able to Skype for a few hours tonight. It was so great to see his face. I miss them both.
