Let's go take a hike! (pic heavy/clickable)

So, as many of you may know, Boulder is always sunny and surrounded by mountains. As a general rule here, one has to be somewhat physically fit and active. Since I'm neither, I've made a goal for myself that I will exercise at least 3x a week. Since I just got here, I'm still not 100% adjusted to the high altitude yet. I decided to start slow and went on an easy hike with Nathan on a sunny day. The weather really IS beautiful here.

The place we went called NCAR, which, I THINK, stands for National Center for Atmospheric Research. It's at the base of a rather tall mountain. The trail we went on was called the Table Mesa trail, I think.

On the way there:

Starting the trail!! 

Along the way:

Look Ma! I found the Hidden Valley!! 

Make a wish! 

The narrow road

We saw a fox! He was NOT scared of us.

A view of Boulder

Note to self: Taking cutesy myspace pic is NOT as easy as it seems. We failed.

Thanks for joining me today! Hope you enjoyed the pics! Have a wonderful day!

I went hiking at Angel Island and although I'm no hiker, the thought of reaching top to see the beautiful view of the bay motivated me keep going. Boulder is sure beautiful. Keep up your exercise routine!
