Colorado River, Rocky Mountains - “LORD, You Know Me”


LORD, you have examined me.  You know me.  You know when I sit down and when I stand up. Even from far away, you comprehend my plans.  You study my traveling and resting.  You are thoroughly familiar with all my ways.  There isn’t a word on my tongue, LORD, that you don’t already know completely.  You surround me—front and back.  You put your hand on me.  That kind of knowledge is too much for me; it’s so high above me that I can’t fathom it.

Psalm 139:1-6

Lulu City's Mother Moose

Lulu City is on the Colorado River and a mother moose and her calf decided to join us.  We quickly left the river and headed into the trees to avoid a hostile mother.

Hiking the Lulu City Trail Head

The Lulu City Trail head follows the Colorado River. Following the route of an old wagon road to the Shipler Mine and Lulu City, this hiking trail follows the Colorado River up the Kawuneeche Valley through Lodgepole Pine and Spruce forests to Lulu City. It rained heavily and we were stucked in a hail storm for 30 minutes.  We used an island of trees among the path as refuge from the storm.  The trail became swampy and white hail balls covered the ground.  There are a lot of stones and high cliffs along the trail.

Ranger Meadows Trail at Shadow Lake Dam

Shadow Lake was formed by the dam built on the Colorado River near Lake Grand.  Ranger Meadows Trail loops to the dam and the trail follows the Colorado River south.  There were a lot of wild flowers in the meadows among the tall grasses.

The Colorado River was wider and deeper at the south end of the dam.  On trails north in the Rocky Mountains, the River waters are shallow and narrow like a creek.
