My wife and I headed up the nice trail. My wife wasn't interested in climbing over deadfall and hiking thru a beetle killed forest, so she continued to the Big Meadow area while I bushwhacked up the peak from the north. There are views once you are on the ridge from time to time and certainly this mountain is prominent from town of Grand Lake. My wife's efforts were rewarded with nice views of a moose and her calf in the meadow.
"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."
