The hike is easy and only around 4 miles round trip however, we detoured by exploring in the clay walled arroyos that skirt the Pawnee Buttes. For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been heading into the mountains to catch the last of the Winter snow. Yesterday was nice to be in the more arid landscape reminiscent of New Mexico. We’d like to go back later in the Spring once the desert plants are blooming.

We’ve been gone almost every weekend during the month of March to make the most of the tail end of Winter. A couple of weeks ago, we ventured up to Moffat Tunnel, near Rollinsville, to hike in the snow. We didn’t bring snowshoes and were still able to hike 4 miles before we had to turn around because the trail became impassable. Between the blizzard and the pine trees draped in long strands of moss, the place reminded me of a forest from The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe.
