I needed a short, pleasant walk close to home and Soldier Mountain was perfect. I saw not a soul once I left Rampart Range Road. The autumn leaves were turning, the sky was bright blue, the views to the west were gorgeous. This outting was easy enough for my almost 10 year old BooDawg...he wasn't even sore afterward, just needed a nap. Partner: Solo. Dog: Bing.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
