A Colorado Mile

Someone needs to tell Colorado that a mile is 5,280 feet long!

We swear when we are hiking here in Colorado that their mile markers are way wrong. There are times when a 0.3 mile trail FEELS like a mile. I know it's the elevation and the elevation change that insults our pride so much, but sometimes it amazes us how challenging a short hike in Colorado can be.

I just don't know how the locals can run the Pikes Peak Marathon, run the mountain trails, bike these mountain roads, and do all of the things that they do. I'm impressed and awed.
