Coyote Ridge Trail starts somewhat unceremoniously just south of the Fort Collins landfill, crosses the prairie, and climbs up the hogback formations that run along the front range here. I like hiking in the prairie. The breeze rustling the dry grass, prairie dogs chirping, and killdeer calling all characterize the land where I was born, causing me to hearken to my own existence. Getting this experience in a four-mile out-and-back hike is a bargain.

Yes I remember that trail. Not too romantic but somehow refreshing and so accessible. Glad that you are feeling better. This was Bay City’s big week of the year…I did seven parties/events and had quite a time of it.
That’s right, St. Patrick’s Day! Since I didn’t go into town, the only green I saw was on a few sprouts of early spring grass. Glad you wore some green for me!
