Horsetooth Hike May 2010

If you’ve driven in Fort Collins or Larimer County, you’ve likely seen Horsetooth Rock. The massive stone landmark sits at 7,255 feet above Horsetooth Reservoir.  A short, pleasant, early season jaunt to the top “tooth” of this Front Range hogback gives you generous 360 degree views of mighty peaks, great plains and deep blue waters.  It’s no wonder it is such a popular hike.

Waffles for dinner? Yes please.

Waffle Brothers

So in case you haven’t noticed by now, I have a bit of a sweet tooth.  I normally am not able to go more than a few days without having something loaded with sugar.  Oreo cookies don’t stand a chance in my cupboard, and Reese’s peanut butter cups throw in the towel before they even get to my apartment.  While these snack foods are very convenient and can be readily available, sometimes I crave just a bit more.  Enter: Waffle Brothers.
