Route Climbed: Carpenter Peak Trail Date Climbed: December 23, 2005
Denver greeted Erin and I with extremely warm temps during our Christmas visit, and Roxborough sounded like a nice place to go to test our legs. I liked seeing all the mule deer along the trail, and the views were excellent from the summit. I wish I had come here sooner!

I hiked Carpenter with the Colorado Mountain Club. We took the Carpenter Peak Trail to the top, then looped back around on a forest service trail and the Elk Valley Trail on the return. There's a lot of snapped branches and downed trees, thanks to last week's snowstorm.

Good workout - short hike - watch for lots of mud in the spring time... Boots recommended during spring for this reason. Watch out for all the people - you may want to go early or later to avoid the crowds.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
