Sunday

Meet at the Kenosha Pass Trailhead at 7:00. Please be on time so we can have boots on the ground promptly.

DIRECTIONS TO THE TRAILHEAD FROM DENVER
Take US 285 South from Denver to Kenosha Pass. At the pass turn left (east) onto FR 126/CR 872.

DIRECTIONS TO THE TRAILHEAD FROM FAIRPLAY
Take US 285 North from Fairplay to Kenosha Pass. At the pass turn right (east) onto FR 126/CR 872.

Drive east for a quarter mile to a parking area with campsites and a couple of out- houses.

I'll be in a blue 4-door 2010 Jeep Rubicon with a marmot on the tire cover.

Red Outback wagon here, should be able to get the Leavick site based on recent reports but if the road gets sketchy I will park lower. Should be there a little ahead of 7am!

Chances are I won't be in Fairplay until dinner time. Sounds like we'll miss each other. =(

Dang it! Hope you have a good climb tomorrow Sarah!

The Saturday climbs went well, it was nice meeting some new people and getting to see some "old friends" again, hopefully we can have more gatherings in the future, its nice to see someone picking up the pieces on this!

I remember when Aaron used to set up Albums after the climbs to share photos, here is one for our gathering this weekend. Feel free to add you pics and your comments!

It was a great day. My 10 year old son Kessler had a really good time and it was great to meet everyone (and re-meet everyone).

Here is a photo just after leaving the summit of Mt Sherman.

Sarah - Glad Sunday went well! Also if you can, either PM me or add to the comments a little blurb about your Sunday hike and I will copy/paste it into the album intro.

Scott - looking forward to seeing more pics added to the album :)

Thanks!

Just got back in Minneapolis and with the minus 10 temp makes the wind and chill of Saturday seem warm. Sunday was absolutely perfect for a winter outing.

Here is a pic of Krista (my girlfriend), Sarah and her amped up pooch Angel on North Twin Cone.

Who you calling amped up pooch??? :)

Mile, I'm in the Bay Area (hi Noondueler et al) and away from my personal pc. I'll try to add a blurb, but will take no offense if Tonka beats me to it!
