Followed the road the whole way, quick stop on the drive back from Vestal Basin. Now I want to build a yurt up there.
Just a road walk in the summer. Red #2 however, that made it worth it. 8.7 miles and 3,333' of gain.
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.
Hiked up Corkscrew Gulch; to Red Mtn 1 and then ridge traverse to Red Mtn 3 and McMillan; descent to 550 via County Rd 14.
great back country ski experience, with Michael Covington and Duchess.
Great fathers day. Did it with my 6 yr old
Looked like a NASA photograph from the surface of Mars. Great views of Route 550.
