Constellation Trail Vista

Constellation Trail Vista

Our first hike in 2016 was in the Constellation Trails across Highway 89A from the Phippen Museum of Western Art. We started on the North 40, joined Ridgeback, and returned via Rock Wall and the Ranch Road Shortcut. This series of trails adjoins the Granite Dells. From our out most point we could see the snow-capped San Francisco Peaks. The trails were busy with people walking their dogs or enjoying the day as a family. One woman was wearing colorful patchwork pants. The most unusual was a barefoot lad. Before we departed I snapped a picture of the statue of Chief Joseph in front of the Phippen that included this quote “From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever.”
