via Fern Canyon  Sucess!

Came from S. Mesa en route to doing the double with S. Boulder and then down Shadow. Great day, sunny and although the winds were supposed to be gusting it was only a little breezy. Fern Canyon is probably the steepest sustained trail I've ever hiked, but the final approach to the summit, the last 100 yards or so coming out of the trees is truly awesome (and a relief!).

New Years Eve Hike via Shadow Canyon  Sucess!

this was a fun day  Sucess!

The scrambling on the rocks near the top was especially fun.

first hike in the foothills  Sucess!

hiked once via Fern and once via the saddle with S Boulder Peak. Shadow Canyon to the saddle is a great way to hit both peaks

Love the Rockies  Sucess!

Wow, I still remember a lot of the botany of the Rockies! Great hike on a beautiful, albeit windy day!!! Was so cold at the top that I had to switch hands after every bite while eating my almost frozen sandwich!!

Fern Canyon  Sucess!

Hiked up Fern Canyon starting at NCAR. It had snowed the two previous days, so parts of the trail were slick. I think that I fell down seven times on the way down. I almost fell several more times. Thank goodness for trekking poles!

Bear and S. Boulder  Sucess!

Fern Canyon trail, made it from the NCAR to Bear in about 1 hr 45 mins, continued on to S. Boulder, then came back to Bear to rest on the summit. Cool views and neat summit rocks. Storms started coming in, so started down after a half hour up there.

Saturday Hike  Sucess!

Started at North Shanahan around 8:30am, then took Fern Canyon to the summit. Went back along the West Ridge to Bear Canyon. Planned to also tag South Boulder but the midday heat changed our minds. The way up was fast and steep with a fun scramble to the final ridge, down was covered and gradual.

From Mesa Trailhead  Sucess!

Enjoyed the stiff climb up Shadow Canyon. Summitted Bear after South Boulder. I really enjoyed the little summit ridge scramble on surprisingly slick rock. Loved the narrow summit area, didn't love so darn many surprisingly unfriendly people on top. Hiking partner: shannarae2k. Dog: Stimpy.
