Lookout Mountain Hike

Last weekend Kari & I met in Golden to hike Lookout Mountain! Our round trip took about 3.5 hours and was probably around 9 miles. And the view - wow!
Kari brought Buck's three dogs, so we had plenty of company.
Once we reached the top, we saw a little path that looked like a continuation of our trail, so we took it. After a half mile, we were underwhelmed (and exhausted) and decided to turn back. We saw a few elk out of the corner of our eye and I was *really* excited and thought I could go home happy with a wildlife sighting. Then, as we kept walking, we saw many elk! There were two spots of the fence that were really low for them to cross the road, and we were in their way! They were determined to cross, so we just watched! We may not have been as close as Karley, but we had a great view!
