While I spent time with the Keiters in Colorado, we went hiking/climbing in Ute Valley twice.
There was a trail that led out from the Keiters’ neighborhood into Ute Valley. We took this trail, which led up from the valley to some rocky cliffs where we had lots of fun climbing and trying to convince Joel not to die.
I really liked Ute Valley. It was very picturesque, and we could look down on the whole neighborhood from the rocks.
The first time we went, Joel took us to a place he and Emily had gone to before, and we climbed the entire two plus hours we were up there. We would have stayed for longer, but Joel had several cuts on his knees and feet, and we had evening plans, so we had to leave.
The second time we visited Ute Valley, we climbed for a little while, then went on a hike. I don’t remember much of the hike. I was looking through a camera lens for most of it.
Here are some pictures I took at Ute Valley.
