Devil’s Backbone Hike

September 29, 2013

Today was a beautiful sunny crisp almost-fall day, so we decided to do a little hike.  We chose Devil’s Backbone, which is an easy 2 mile hike just west of Loveland.  It was gorgeous!

Here’s the trailhead.  Fall colors are just starting to turn!

Picnic Table Dudes.  This area would be a really lovely place to have a picnic sometime, by the way.

Isaac returns the trail map to Jamie’s back pocket. LOL.

Such a beautiful day!  You can see why this rock formation is called Devil’s Backbone.  The rocks jut out on the top of this hill and form a straight line – just like a backbone – for quite some distance.

Look how blue the sky is!!  And Jamie continues his streak of balancing Isaac on tall posts.
