Prep for Longs. David in backpack
I camped at Glacier Basin the night before and hiked at Bear Lake early in the morning before coming out here in the afternoon. Decent hike and an unreliable trail led me to go crosscountry a few times including ending up on the road for the last mile. Pretty sweet views at the top and relative solitude make this one a keeper in the rockies.

After work I climbed Lily Mountain. SAR was on the mountain doing a rescue. I made it to the summit and enjoyed the views before heading back down.

After work I climbed Lily Mountain near Estes Park. It was a nice peak with nice views, but the last part of the route was icy.
My wife and I are in Boulder for a few days so we had to sneak up to Rocky Mountain. Great afternoon hike. The views of Longs and the other peaks are amazing. Easy two hour jaunt. Followed it up with a walk around Lily Lake.
With the pup. Combined with Rams Horn and Gianttrack. Pretty darn good views up there.
I did this as a fun day hike with some friends. My two-year-old was able to hike most of it, so that should tell you something. Great views from the top of RMNP.
Bushwhacked this one from Lily lake. Fun scrambling to be had when climbing over the southern false summit.
Just above camp!
With Erin. The flood has wiped out the trail on this mountain.
Good way to ring in 2013 with rkymtn. Perfect option for January weather.
good w/dogs as well.
A nice climb with my wife. The sky was clear and the trail was well packed, which allowed us to leave snowshoes behind. We enjoyed good views from the summit.
Had to move pretty quick to beat out the rain and lightning. Made it to the top just as it got bad, went to the top to say we made it and left right away, lightning was pretty bad. Caught in heavy rain on way down. Fun little adventure.
Hot day in June. Pleasantly surprised with the view at summit. Sad you could see three separate fires from top though.
It was a nice warm-up hike when I had just arrived to the Rockies. An easy walk and a fun little scramble at the summit.
Enjoyed the views from this summit. Sure seemed to take a long while to reach the summit for not very much elevation though.
With Emily, Tanya, Tass and Carey.
Nice lil' hike in park, great view of Longs.
hiked this bugger during a snowstorm back in the days. good, short hike, interesting experience.
