Born to Run

When the weatherman begins to forecast snow instead of rain, it's time to get outside and enjoy the last of the snowless high country while it lasts. And when restless dogs are scratching at the door, it's all the more reason. Molas Pass is a perfect place to let the pups run wild over the sun-soaked hills up to the Colorado Trail. There, you’ll find beautiful vistas where sticks can be thrown, rodents can be chased, and this season's ski lines can be scouted.

Over the river and through the woods, but not to grandmother's house.
One stick against three dogs; the odds are in their favor.

The floppier, the better.
