Red Rocks is a must see when you are in the Denver area. Concerts, “Film on the Rocks”, wildlife, a quick hike, a trail run, one huge workout gym, it’s got it all. Wanna see what I’m talking about?
How about a concert with an amazing view? Here you go. Red Rocks will put out their calendar starting in March. They also do “Film on the Rocks” during the summer where they show movies like “Ghostbuster” and “The Goonies” plus a little music. Fun!
Feel like going for a workout without going to a “gym”. Try doing what the freaks of nature do and do a squat jump up each and every one of these stairs. Not enough? Do a push up as well? Just so you know, I once ran down each and every row and it was a total of 3 miles. I just wanted to know.
Here is the view once you get to the top of those stairs.
Want to see some wildlife frolicking?
Want to go for a quick hike? You’ve got the Trading Post Trail that starts and ends at the Trading Post. It’s about a 1.5 mile hike and when you’re finished you should go into the store and buy some fudge for your efforts. Here is your view.
If you want a great trail run, make sure to hit up the Red Rocks Trail. You’ve got ups and downs and a fun little climb over some big ol rocks! It’s a great 6 miler.
Here I am gearing up for my run wearing my New Skin gear of course.
On a side note: my ankle is doing better. I took yesterday off and will attempt a run today. The left ankle is still tender and my right shin is scraped up but doesn’t hurt as bad. My mom called me fussing at me for going alone on the trail. So just for the record: It was a popular trail medley that loops around. I actually had 2 ladies see me fall and offer to help and then another trail runner ask if I needed him to carry me back. For safety, someone always knows where I am running and I never go to a terribly remote area alone. Plus, I had my phone with me. I didn’t feel like I was in danger or was taking unnecessary risks by trail running. It is part of it. It was my first big trail running tumble and I wear it as a badge of honor.

Have you ever taken a tumble on the trail? Did it shake your confidence or did you just shake it off?
