Red 3  Sucess!

Parked at St. Paul’s lodge, and it was a short hike to the top (around 2.1 miles). Had to cross a horizontal snowfield at about mile 1.3, and I was too lazy to put on the microspikes, so I kicked my way across. Had to cross another one around mile 1.8, but this one was at a 45-degree angle straight up. Fun! Had the summit to myself for a bit before heading down. Too much snow to connect over to Red #2, so I’ll have to save it for another day.

Road Hike  Sucess!

Followed the road the whole way, quick stop on the drive back from Vestal Basin. Now I want to build a yurt up there.

With Red #2  Sucess!

Just a road walk in the summer. Red #2 however, that made it worth it. 8.7 miles and 3,333' of gain.

Red Mountain No. 3  Sucess!

Kessler and I headed for Red Mountain Pass to do a climb. Since time was short, we decided on Red Mountain No. 3. We climbed Red Mountain No. 3 via the old mining road, but it was still a very scenic climb and the mountains are very colorful. There wasn't as much snow around as there normally is.
