Feeling a little sluggish after too much holiday food and cheer?  Need some exercise?  This may be the hike for you.  We'll hike Sandstone Ranch Open Space in Douglas County, hiking both the Sandstone Meadow Trail Loop (3.7 miles) and the Juniper Valley Loop (3.2 miles).  If time, will-power, and consensus allow, we can also hike the Ranch Overlook Trail (2.2 miles) when we complete the Sandstone Meadow Trail.  Be prepared for cold, windy, muddy, icy, or snowy conditions.  Ice walkers and/or snowshoes might be needed.  Please bring your ten essentials, dress in layers, bring at least 2 liters of water, and plenty of food (including lunch).   Here is the link for the Sandstone Ranch Open Space map, which you can download:

A good time was had by one and all.  Terre Topp left the hike at 11:00 am.  We all escorted her to the trailhead parking lot.  There were no incidents or accidents to report.
