Looks like a nice, leisurely type of hike. Too bad the air quality sucked. Must have been from forest fires?
Thanks for looking and commenting,
I don't know what that smog was from. Flying from Chicago to Salt Lake City, there seemed to be a dark cloud of haze all the way from Iowa to Utah. You think somebody would say something about it in the news but I did not hear anything.
It was definitely the forest fires. Most of the Western US was very hazy/smokey that weekend, including in Colorado, where we were.
"I did not bother to investigate the structure on the summit, probably a weather/communications station or something"
If you are curious, it's an old helicopter serviced radio/communications tower that was put in there in the early to mid 1980's. It has been abandoned for years.
