Coldest I’ve been for quite some times. Violent wind blowing snow most of the way to Isabelle Lake.

South Boulder Peak & Bear Peak near Boulder, Colorado
Quick drive and a very good work out. Great view of Longs Peak and the City of Boulder.
Power Station in Boulder, CO – Playing with my new telephoto 🙂

The trailhead to Morrison Peak is only 35 minutes away from my place so it’s an easy way to go up and down 2000ft without taking too much time out of my day…
Denver downtown can be seen from up there.
Chief Mountain on Saturday, Mt Evans Rd on Sunday. Hiked from Echo Lake to Summit Lake (one mile short)
“View” of Mt Evans from Chief Mountain…

Hiked (snowshoeing mostly) up to tree line along the black cloud trail. Was running late so had to turn around. Good workout though.
Hiked the Chicago Lakes trail from Echo Lake to summit lake. I intended to climb Mt Evans but the weather turned pretty quickly so decided to jog along the road under the snow back to Echo Lake…
Fun 19 mile loop
Hiked to the top of Mt Democrat. I was planning to do Lincoln / Cameron / Bross as well but the cold wind was just too much. Good hike though.
14,270 feet – 8.50 miles round trip. A fairly familiar hike for the morning. I’ve hiked these seven times I think but I just can’t get tired of the view from up there.
Part of the sky was overcast and the contrast was just fantastic.
The Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Mid did very well. I’m retiring the Lowa Renegade GTX for the snow season.
