La Plata Canyon
I spent the day on Sunday at La Plata Canyon. A friend of mine, Jeremy Kinney, and his girlfriend, Cinda, invited me to come hiking with them for the day. This fulfilled an absolute complete weekend for me. This was after spending the day before in Pagosa Springs and surrounding mountains.
We drove for about an hour up into the canyon, and hiked for about another hour or so. When we got towards the top, I had noticed some patches of snow, or ice I suppose, down the face of the mountain. Being a glutton for adventure, I decided to climb down to the icy patch.
Getting down wasn’t too easy with loose rocks threatening to start an avalanche of some sort. I finally made it, and decided to bum slide around for a while. It sure was fun.
The real hard part was climbing back up the mountain!
