breezy day after Christmas Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2008
Nothing better to do the day after Christmas, so I grabbed Jack and headed up to do this short hike to burn off some of yesterdays dinner. Nice views except to the west due to the Indian Peaks being shrouded in clouds.
steve and i braced the horrible rain and wind storm for ~30 minutes to hike sugarloaf from the high parking lot. a great lookout tower from what we could see(barely). drenched upon returning to the car, we passed on the 9er bald until another time.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
