Just a quick walk up/training hike but still a nice one.
Nice hike with amazing views. Wish I had this in my back yard!
Climbed up this one late morning on a cloudy spring day after a dawn ascent of Quail.
With 10123, Bassam Ridge, 9980, 9965, Castle Rock, 9635, 9547, 9490 & Sugarloaf Mountain.
What a great hike with wonderful trees and wildlife! Almost no snow.
This is a beautiful snow season hike. The Sawatch views weren't as great as we hoped b/c the mountains were socked in with snow. But stomping through the powder (we took a "scenic" ascent route) then strolling back through the snow-covered desert was nice.
One of the more hectic things I ever did!
Woke up at 3:30 a.m. in Janesville, Wisconsin, drove to Chicago and took a flight to Denver. Drove to Buena Vista, pulled my hiking clothes out of the suitcase and put them on in the car. Started the hike at 2:40 p.m and was on the summit by 3:40 p.m. Great hike with wonderful views. I am sure during the morning hours the views of the Peaks of the Sawatch Range (to the west) will be much better than the afternoon. Good way to acclimatize.
