Route Climbed: Horn Peak Trail Date Climbed: August 26, 2005
Took my friend Jennifer up for her first mountain summit! The trail could use a little maintenance up high. The view of Silver Cliff and Westcliffe was grand. I can see my house in Silver Cliff from the summit.

Attempted this mtn with my young and beautiful Wife..........we failed miserably! We needed more lungs and legs. Our high point was the lower peak that you can see from the valley @ about 12,600'. Great view!
We hope to bag it this August. The Sangres are beautiful mountains. Do yourself a favor and stop in at the Alpine Lodge for a meal. It's located at the Alvarado Campground (Comanche-Venable trailhead). It's a great restaurant, nestled in the trees @ 9,000 feet and it's got a few cabins as well. It makes a great base camp if you wanna spend a few days bagging some peaks, and want a shower,bed, and a good meal each evening!
