Celebrate National Take A Hike Day With Minute Of Boulder Colorado Eldorado Canyon Adventure , Taking Walk On Roosevelt Island Is A Bit Different On RI Historical Tour Walk


Today is National Take A Hike Day.

It's so true that there are many hiking trails in Boulder Colorado and here's one minute of my hike on an El Dorado Canyon Trail outside Boulder (Click full screen icon at bottom right of video for great view).



I learned you have to watch out for bears and rattlesnakes on the trail.

Taking a Roosevelt Island hike is not quite as dramatic on our Roosevelt Island Historical Tour.


More on the Roosevelt Island Historical Walk from the Roosevelt Island Historical Society.

Here's how National Take A Hike Day was celebrated



in other parts of the country.
