Ahhh I had a slip and fell down a really slippery ice chute and twisted my ankle above the saddle. I definitely didn't feel like continuing on that particular day. =/

All the gain, half the time.  Sucess!

Hiked for the first time in February. LOTS of snow up there. Did again with my little brother. It was his first mountain. There was enough snow to nail down standing glissades on the trail over half the way down the mountain. Loved the scrambling sequence right before the summit!

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!

Hiked Bear Peak before going to see Leftover Salmon at the Boulder Theater. Perfect NYE! Weather was nice and sunny>winds were relatively calm

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!

"Green and Bear it"  Sucess!
