|Climbed Mt. Garfield a number of times. It is very challenging for a two mile hike with 2000 feet of elevation gain. Very good training hike for higher mountains or just to keep you in shape. What happened to the flag this year?|

Kessler, Kimberly, Shaylee, and I climbed Mount Garfield. It was a little windy, but it was a very warm day, especially for March. We did the steep standard route to the summit.
The kids were usually ahead of us and we had them loaded down with all the stuff.
It was a good little climb and of note, it was Shaylee's 300th mountain.

I gave a slideshow in Vernal the evening of the 15th and then had to be in Palisade the next night. On the way between Vernal and Palisade Kimberly and I stopped at Fourmile Draw in Canyon Pintado. We hiked the supposed two mile (according to some sources; we believe the loop is shorter) loop past the pictographs and petroglyphs.
After Fourmile Draw we headed to Palisade. We still had time to climb Mount Garfield.
It was really windy, but we made the climb anyway. It was almost hot climbing up the mountain and we made our way rather quickly to the summit. After enjoying the fine views, we returned down the mountain. I didn’t bring trekking poles, so the very steep climb down was very slippery.

Today I hiked Mount Garfield after church in Grand Junction. It was raining, but after church it cleared and I set off up the mountain. It’s a fairly steep, but easy climb with nice views.
Once at the summit, instead of following the standard trail down, I followed the ridge east over several other minor summits before heading back down to the trailhead.

I climbed Mount Garfield with my pregnant wife. We saw some wild horses and enjoyed the nice views.

|I was in town visiting the in-laws so I thought I'd give this little mountain a try. The weather was gorgeous and the views were worth the hike. It took me almost exactly an hour to reach the summit from the trailhead.|
