The wife, pup, and I from Columbine Campground. For some reason I stupidly decided to leave the jacket and pack in the car...it was nice out...and this peak wouldn't take long. Let's just say I couldn't get back to the car fast enough after a snow squall moved through...
We drove as far up Hamlin Gulch Road as the Jeep preferred, then things got sketchy and we parked just below the big hairpin turn. (The road above gets narrow and down-sloping and is just not a pleasant place to be on 4 wheels in the snow!) Nice walk up to this summit, surprised to find a trail - Kiefer and I anticipated a bushwhack and found instead a well-traveled locals' peak.
"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."
