I’m Not Your Steppin Stone

“I said, I-I-I-I-I’m not your steppin’ stone”

Paul Revere & The Raiders

Finally a full on mountain hike! Alright, it wasn’t exactly “a mountain”, but we started low, hiked way up high, had great views of Durango below, AND smelled some pine. It was a damn fine day 18. For you stat lovers it was 7.9 miles, 2000 feet up, in the upper 7000’s. It got us all feeling ready to tackle an actual mountain soon. I’m actually not really sure what else to say other than it was a perfect hike. Everyone happy, only two other people the entire time, great stony trail, great mountainy views. A+++

After finishing we were all ready for a shower, but our room wasn’t ready so we had to have a beer at Steamworks first. This afternoon Mol and I are hanging out on a patio with a view of the Animas and a cold drink in hand. Tonight we’re visiting two of my favorite Durangan institutions: Zia Taquira and Bookcase and the Barber. ⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰

  1. Sounds like a 5 mountain day. As soon as I saw “Steppin Stone” I thought of the Monkees who had a big hit with it. Forgot about the Raiders, who were always a little edgier.
