Hiking Colorado High Country: Ruby Jewel Trail – 27June2019

Winter does not want to let go in this part of Colorado – even though it is officially summer and the Colorado Front Range is above 90 degrees F! Looks like it will be mid to late July before this trail will be clear. Above this spot snow was above the knee in many places making for a tiring slog. And it was hard to find the trail so I had to turn back. Still, a stunning day and the sights and smells were wonderful.
