Golden Gate Canyon Hike

Today my younger son and I took a hike in the Golden Gate Canyon State Park.  To be specific, we hiked the Coyote trail, which took us past Bootleg Bottom, where we observed a cabin used by moonshiners during Prohibition.  Close by we were surprised to discover a defunct gasoline-powered steamroller from the late 1950s or early 1960s.  (My Internet research failed to determine whether it was a Buffalo Springfield, an International Harvester, a Galion, or some other brand.)  Few things are more unexpected than a steamroller beside a forest trail.

The Coyote trail then intersected the Mule Deer trail, which took us on a long loop past Panorama Point before returning us to our car.  Panorama Point, a favorite wedding venue, afforded striking views of the Rocky Mountains that my little camera and I were incompetent to capture.  But I'll include a photo anyway.
