I lived in Fort Collins for 18 years before I ever made it to the summit of Horsetooth Rock. My daughters did it yesterday at ages 8 and 10. Towers last July and now Horsetooth Rock, way to go girls.

We hiked up with The Nick Clark and his family and Rob and his daughter in the first FFCTR (Future Fort Collins Trail Runners) family hike. We all had a good time hiking with the others but also had some nice father-daughter time when we lagged behind at times. Though the going was sometimes difficult and very uphill there was very little whining -- possibly the biggest compliment. We will be awaiting the next one -- maybe on a peak with a little less ice on the way up.
