Peak 10,350  Sucess!

The weather forecast wasn't very good, so I headed for some lower peaks. I first climbed Limestone Ridge between Fairplay and Buena Vista. On the way up, I got pretty wet climbing through the grass and fallen timber, but I reached an old (and very steep) road cut before heading off trail to the summit. The views were nice from the edge of the cliffs, but the higher peaks were all socked in. I was surprised that there were juniper trees near the summit. I haven't seen them this high before. After enjoying the summit, I followed the old road cut back to the vehicle. On the descent I saw a chicken! It was a real chicken, not a wild bird.

After summitting Limestone Ridge, I decided to head north for Peak 10,350. It was a nice hike and was only steep in a few places. The views weren't quite as good as from the edge of the cliffs on Limestone Ridge, but were still pretty good. I then headed back, finding some interesting mining ruins on the west side of the ridge along the way.

It was very cloudy and humid on the climbs, but it never did rain more than a few drops.

Eastern Slope  Sucess!

Still recovering from the flu and this didn't appear to be too demanding (and it wasn't). Nice view.

with Limestone Ridge  Sucess!

Nice peak with good views. A good way to spend a windy cool spring day while the high peaks were getting blasted with wind. Also climbed Limestone Ridge to the south and some other peaks south of US 285.
