Hiking the Scout Trail

My hiking buddy planned a very exciting hike for this week: The Boy Scout Trail.
Here's my fearless leader explaining where we'll be going. This lady is a font of knowledge when it comes to hiking. I always learn so much --- and get exercise, too. Such a deal!

Looking down on the Hot Springs Pool and Hotel Colorado, at the beginning of the hike.

Faithful hiking companion, Run'way, checking out the steep mountainside. He decided we shouldn't head down that way -- thank God!

But he had noticed I was using my hiking sticks this time and he decided that maybe he should have one of his own. Definitely a good idea, Run'way!

We hiked up to where the truck fell over the edge! What? A truck had driven up this trail? Apparently it's been there a long time, but I sure didn't want to poke around it.

We turned around and had this beautiful view of the Roan Plateau.

On the way down, another view of the Hot Springs Pool.
Took us about 2.5 hours. A well-spent morning in Paradise!
