On the Edge
My friend and I took a short hike just out of town, and that is what I love about Durango. A short bike ride from my house put me at the trailhead for the Horse Gulch and Telegraph trail system. A relatively short hike from there took me to a peak on the ridge which rises to an elevation of 8,055 feet (2,455.16 meters) above sea level. My friend and I are just travelers through this land, but life on the edge for the permanent residences, such as the piñon trees, the yucca, the juniper and the cacti can be rough.
