Terrific intro to RMNP  Sucess!

After running Half Marathon in Denver earlier this day this non-technical trail was all I could handle. But few crowds sunny sky a summit all to myself, great views. Loved it.

Hard to find the actual summit or a clear viewpoint. Nice hike though.

Deer Mountain Loop  Sucess!

Cold, windy fall day on Deer Mountain with Andrea. We ascended from Deer Ridge then descended the other side and looped around the north side of the mountain. Great views of a blustery park.

Deer Mountain  Sucess!

After work I climbed Deer Mountain. It was a nice late afternoon/evening hike and the views were great. It was a little windy, but still pleasant.

Excellent views  Sucess!

A bit longer of a hike than anticipated since we were new to this, but very much worth it for amazing views!

First day in RMNP  Sucess!

Quick hike with nice rocky perches overlooking the park, and Estes and stretch the legs/lungs. Bit rainy. Longs looming to the south, which is why I was there.

afternoon hike  Sucess!

Quick afternoon hike after spending the morning on Otis, Hallett and Flattop. Nice view from the summit, but the trip up not so interesting.

Nicer than expected  Sucess!

Took my 6 year old and my 8 year old up this peak for their first real mountain summit under their own power. It was right about at the edge of their stamina and i think they had fun despite much whining. Perfect weather day. I've hiked all over RMNP and after finally doing Deer Mountain, I say it's worth it!

Snow and sun  Sucess!

Beautiful, warm weather today. Upper trail was full of snow. Packed pretty well, started post holing in the late afternoon.

Deer Mountain Trail  Sucess!

A nice, easy, hike with my wife. The trail was fairly snow free and incoming weather held off until we were down.
