CMC trip. We hiked over from Papoose. There were some shooter taking target practice at the Squaw/Papoose saddle. The were tons of orange clay pigeons on the ground. Clouds started rolling in on the way up. It was pretty windy on the summit, but the lookout tower was unlocked, and we ate lunch in there. Then we walked back down the road.
From Squaw Pass Road this is a very short but nice cross country skiing tour on the mellow lookout tower road.
Blue sky day, very little wind. Linked with Papoose and Chief. Thanks to Matt M. the weather and the mountains for a great day.
Nice little hike up from the main road. awesome views. Nice views. better weather then when I did chief mountain the week before
Packed trail to summit of Chief, then had to break trail over Papoose, then packed trail on the road up Squaw.
An easy hike on a nice day. My wife and I enjoyed this relaxing outing after the previous day's climb of Saint Vrain Mountain. We followed this up with Warrior.
Ranger's second peak!
Was heading up high to get some peaks but realized at the Evergreen exit my boots were sitting next to the front door! What an idiot! Decided to head up and do Chief, Warrior and Squaw Mnts knowing I could do them in sneakers on this sunny day. Some nice rocks on the tops of these peaks.
Multiple ascents ... a favorite to climb with my daughter Megabug!
Ringing in the new year with this nice trio. Papoose (although unranked) was the favorite of the three. Repeated the loop once since.
I don't mind roads..haha. Nice hike with some good views, crystal blue sky day.
Enjoyable, easy snowshoe on broken trail. Fun little scramble to the summit at the top. A big fox was hanging out up there! Cooler peak than I'd expected.
Not much to this without a linkup to Chief and Papoose after work.
I figured this would be a nice easy hike to get my 3 year old son Jezreel into hiking mountains and to start getting him into shape. He was a bit slow, but we made it. This was his first summit he hiked entirely by himself. I am no longer carrying him on my back. He enjoyed the tower on top and called it a castle. He asked me, "Where is the princess, Daddy?"
It's here, first summit of New Year, weather was great.
Was looking for a nice easy snowshoe ascent for my parent's first, but only had 1-3", so it turned into their second hike summit instead!
