Chautauqua Mountain Trail Date Climbed: Apr 5, 2009
We summitted this peak on a painfully beautiful, sunny day following a fresh dump of April powder. The trail was hard to locate, but once we found it, it's like a magic carpet whisking us to the summit. The weather started to deteriorate (higher winds, snow rolling in), but we lucked out and snuck the hike right into a weather window - best weather of the day! Partner: Terre. Dog: Stimpy.
