vibram Barefoot Alternative (Four Hour Work Week. com) . Joel July 13th, 2009 11:13 am Thanks Jon and Angel This weekend I added a run with standard running ビブラム and did some serious stretching before my run with fivefingers . Today, my calves do not hurt nearly as much. So, stretching and some alternating seems to be the answer. I was a little disappointed in how much it hurt ファイブフィンガーズ bottoms of my feet when I ran on a rocky trail and then a gravel path with rocks that were hard to avoid.

I had driven through the Rockies before but never did any real hiking up the mountains. The air here was chill but the sun was blazing down and keeping us warm

The new Cataract Ridge Reroute generally follows the Continental Divide and is entirely above tree line. Reports from scouts and users suggest that water has been available and that the high terrain undulates affording some lower ground that can give comfort in electrical storms.

Never been through the Rockies, but walked part of the Appalachian Trail!

You really can't overestimate the value of a little preparation.

I had driven through the Rockies before but never did any real hiking up the mountains. The air here was chill but the sun was blazing down and keeping us warm. The climb up Flat Top doesn’t really begin until you get around the blueberry trail. This part was about as easy as it sounds. It’s a loop trail that skirts a smaller peak below Flattop. It was a nice hike to get warmed up for the steeper ascent that would follow.

I might suggest the section around my home. From Leadville to Marhall Pass.

There is an excellent variety of terrain, from above timerline in the Mt Massive Wilderness to nice trails through great Aspen and Evergreen forests.

There are several places where it crosses major roads, so it is not as committing as many sections.

It is a nice 125 miles of well maintained and uncrowded section of the Colorado Trail.

I would agree with Holly. The Cataract Ridge Reroute is spectacular. But do watch out for lightning... I remember one summer my ice axe was signing on top of Uncompahgre Peak.
