Route Climbed: Forest Road 379 Date Climbed: October 10, 2004
Climbed to the summit with my son JP after a 4W drive of epic proportions up to Stratton Resevoir. The weather was perfect with spectacular views of Pikes, Cameron Cone, Cheyenne Canyon and Mt. Rosa. Could also see the Blanca Group, Crestone Group and much of the Sawatch.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
