A hot dusty hike through a beautiful section of the Curecanti National Recreation Area and Gunnison National Forest. We left the Dillon Peaks Trail and hiked a couple miles up a canyon and were rewarded with more beautiful views and a herd of Bighorn Sheep. Spotting thunderheads building beyond the end of the box canyon, we turned around and hightailed it for the car.
This hike was the first time either of us found ticks on us, and we both had one! Luckily you aren’t supposed to get anything from them if you find them within 24 hours, but we still monitored each other for a couple weeks afterwards just in case.
