Royal Arch

The weather was forecasted in the mid 50's so we decided to go for a hike. None of the Northern Colorado hikes seemed interesting to us, so we decided to venture down to Boulder and hike the Royal Arch trail. Unknowingly, Boulder got a little bit more snow than we did in Northern Colorado and most of the trail was pretty snow-packed. I was a bit underprepared in the fact that I really could have used my crampons and a long-sleeved shirt, but overall, it was a really fun hike.

The hike was very steep, 1,600 feet of elevation gain in a little over 2 miles one way. mixed ith the snow and ice, it was a slow-going hike at two and a half hours total.

Arthur's Rock

Katie and I decided to go on a quick hike. Not wanting to drive too far, we picked Lory State Park for our destination and hiked Arthur's Rock. The hike was pretty easy, right at 4 miles and 1,100 feet of elevation gain, but it was a bit cold, epecially as the sun was setting.

FLL 2019

I decided to volunteer again for the First Lego League tournament at Poudre High School. It was pretty fun, as usual, seeing a bunch of exicted kids playing with lego robots for the day. This year's challenge was called City Shaper, which was all about architecture and infustructure.
