Sugarloaf MTB

This is Sugarloaf Mountain, as seen from the Betasso Preserve:

We put the bikes on the Xterra and drove up to the Sugarloaf Mountain trailhead. Laurel went for an hour-long run down Glacier Lake Road. I had run 7 miles the day before, so I hiked up Sugarloaf Mountain instead. The mountain is very visible from Boulder, and from its summit there are fantastic 360 degree views.

I took a bunch of pictures from the summit to make panoramas. The wind was intense! At least 50 MPH.

Laurel arrived back at the car about the same time I did. We took the bikes down and headed out the same road she had just run on. It's a pretty tame road for mountain bikes but it was a fun ride -- about 6 miles west to the Peak-to-Peak highway, then back.

The ride back home took us right by the turn off for the Betasso Preserve, so we parked there and hiked for a short while.
