Shoshoni & Pawnee Peaks

From Fort Collins, I drove south on I-25, west on CO-66, north on CO-7, south on CO-72 and west on Brainard Lake Road to the winter closure. I biked up to the Long Lake Trailhead over snowpacked and icy sections of road without incident. I locked my bike at the trailhead and hiked up the Pawnee Pass Trail. I put snowshoes on just after the Pawnee Pass-Isabelle Glacier Trail intersection and left them on all the way to the summit of Pawnee Peak. I descended down to Pawnee Pass, then followed the ridge to the summit of Shoshoni, enjoying the mild scramble at the summit. I followed my ascent route back to the Pawnee Pass Trail.
