My mother and brother flew into Denver International the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and as we waited for my sister to arrive on a later flight, we decided to make use of the beautiful 60+ degree Front Range weather and go for a hike! We wanted something scenic and entertaining, but not too far away, so we chose Red Rocks in Morrison.

Sweet rocks.

Looking back down the trail.

Up high, the trail leveled out on a small mesa top, but at this point we turned around and headed back down. Still, we managed to log over 3 miles and 600 feet of elevation gain on our mid-day hike, which was bound to help with all of the turkey consumption on the morrow!
