Hike the mine
I hiked the quarry this morning. That's right - the Pikeview Quarry, which sprawls across the mountainside on the north side of Colorado Springs. We were hiking to determine the difficulty of a route that will be used at "Walk the Mine," a fund-raiser for the Colorado Mountain Reclamation Foundation. That's the group that sponsored "Scale the Scar" for years at the Queens Canyon quarry. The hike at Pikeview is scheduled for Sept. 2. For more information, go to www.coloradomtnreclamation.com; watch for more information in the Out There section in coming weeks.
(For the curious, this hike is steep, with a great shaded portion through the trees.)
