The trails today were a little icy in spots. Most of the time you could walk on the edges. Many of us still wore the Yak trax. Maybe we will get to put them away????

|St. Louis Canyon Rock Slide|
This is where the rock slide took place in 2002. You can still tell a little.
|St. Louis Canyon ice fall|
|Bottom of the ice fall|
At the bottom of the fall where the water is falling is about 3 feet thick of ice. We also went behind the ice fall.

On the way back I had everyone sit on this long slab of sandstone for a photo. I always wanted to take a photo here. What a great looking group!!!

|Inside Aurora Canyon|
Aurora is my favorite canyon. Not many people go here, in comparison to other canyons. Today getting there was a little tricky. I had to slide down a few steps on my rear. Only 3 of us went all the way in the Canyon.

It is that time of year again.... Remember those candles that you could burn and when you get to the bottom there was a prize? Well it is the same way with the snow. When it melts, we are left with many surprises that seemed too heavy to carry in the winter. (yeah right). When going out, carry a small trash bag (plastic grocery bags work great).
I will leave you with this: Wherever you may hike or walk, just put one foot in front of the other. It's all about the experience not the destination.
