Devil’s Backbone

A path I’ve walked for 20 years

with rain, snow, wind and the sun

in awe. This geologic wonder—

how it formed, that it remains. 

–Joanna Rago, November 2018

  1. Nice Joanna! I love this short hike…or you can choose to keep going, walking for an entire day on towards Coyote Ridge or Horsetooth. Perhaps I’ll write about the curvy playful bike trail they created out there!
    Congratulations to Veronica and all the poets in town she’s encouraged and inspired!
