Little Bear Peak

There are 58 Peaks of +14000ft in Colorado. I’ve now hiked / climbed 57 of them. Culebra Peak (the private 14er) is left. I have mixed feelings about paying $150 for the permit and the place is closed for the season anyway so I have to wait for October 1st.

Little Bear peak is a whole different animal compared to the other Colorado 14ers. Very short in terms of distance but very steep. There are essentially three parts;
1) An 800ft climb in a steep gully full of rocks
2) A long hike on the southern slope going up 1000ft
3) Final climb through the infamous ‘Hourglass’

I met a group of climbers on my way up so I had some good company for most of the climb.

Capitol Reef, Utah

February 16th-17th, 2018
Short road trip to Capitol Reef, Utah with the Jeep and my brand new tires đŸ™‚

Drove along the Cathedral Valley Road up to the Temple of the Moon and Temple of the Sun. Then I retraced  a few miles and cross over to the Hartnet Rd (a bit rough but lots of fun) to check out both Lower & Upper Cathedral Valley overlook. Finally I exited the area via the north back to I70…
