    Spectacular scenery of red rock formations, combining mountain and city views w/mild weather & blue skies. Another well-organized hike at my favorite state park - thanks Scott!

    Hi Scott. I did not see we were moved up to "going" until too late. We went to Roxborough but did not get there until 11:00am. We were hoping to meet up with the group somewhere in the park, but must have missed you. We had a great hike anyway, in spite of the thick ice on the path. Love the Microspikes! Thanks for planning this Scott.

    Is anyone coming from the 470 and Smokey Hill (or Southeast Aurora) area that I could carpool with? I'll pitch in some gas money.
