Fall in the Rockies – St Vrain Glacier

After six consecutive incredible weekends, today it was nice to return to a local chill Saturday run in the high country. What a streak it has been starting with Mt Werner 50K, Buchanan-Pawnee Loop, Pikes Peak Ascent, Longs Peak, Imogene Pass and last weekend a 50 miler in Moab. We headed out to St Vrain Glacier from Camp Dick for a 16 miler to enjoy what remains of the Rocky Mountain fall season. No Garmin route today as it already posted here.

The trip out to the glacier is a gentle incline.

Some old faces, some new faces and some new Rocky Mountain single track dogs being trained by Dr Jay.

The weather could not have been better.

And the views at 11,000 feet. Not much snow pack left this year…

I believe this is Gibraltar Lake tucked in right below what is left of the glaciers. It was an incredibly quiet place.

Time to head for home.

With a few golden stops along the way.


I am glad Alfred caught this one…I must have been staring at my shoes 😉

And another….

The new normal…I am luvin it.
