In exchange for planning/leading a backpacking trip to Comanche Lake, I took the ladies up Comanche Peak and Spring Mountain. This area is absolutely beautiful. With Elissa.
From the trail, with a cold tailwind. Trip report.
Nice loop in pesky fall snow.
Climbed while on a Loop up Venable and down Comanche. Great area.
With Venable Peak, Comanche Peak, 12873, Round Mountain, Bull Domingo Hills HP, Beckwith Mountain & Democratic Mountain.
Loop climb from North Crestone TH, up Comanche traverse over Spring to Venable, back down to our camp near the base of the Comanche Trail. Very little visibility most of the day, then the clouds started to break on descent of Spring just in time to be "wowed" by the view of Phantom Terrace! Climbed with Scot and Colin.
Climbed Spring with my mom and sister. Weather was amazing. Views were amazing.
