Awfully windy last night! Trails are dry, though.
Good after work hike.
used to cruise up this baby frequently back when i lived in golden. always a pleasure!
This was a short fun hike I did in fall of 2002. I can't remember the date. I went for a short run on the mesa top, and then went to the summit.
Ugh, I am incredibly heat intolerant and this hot, bright sunny day on this southwest-facing trail darn near killed me. Luckily, I had fueled up just before the hike at the Old Capitol Grill. A blackened chicken sandwhich and a tall glass of beer cured whatever ailed me that day. This was my second hike of the day, after Centennial Cone just to the west. Solo.
