Grizzly Peak, Colorado

Short hike to the top of Grizzly Peak, Colorado in May 2016

Starting the hiking season slowly…

Chicago Lakes, Mount Evans Wilderness

Short hike (snowshoeing) to the Chicago Lakes, Mount Evans Wilderness, Colorado

Mt Elbert – Nov 2015

11.3 miles – 11:45 total time – 5732ft ascent
Not the best weather. Coldest / strongest wind ever. After a few hours my water bottles were frozen…inside my backpack. Still better than staying around Denver for Black Friday…

Mt Democrat – Fall 2015

“Guess I just never thought of myself as an angry man.” – Raylan Givens
I thought I would go ahead with my plans of hiking Mt Democrat, Mt Cameron, Mt Lincoln and Mt Bross in spite of the recent events in Paris. In vain really. My anger is not going anywhere but so far I’ve refrained from any public statement so at least there’s that.

Grays and Torreys – Fall 2015

November 7, 2015
Snow hike of Grays and Torreys Peak on a perfect day. A little bit under eight hours.
The Kahtoola microspikes were really useful. Carried snowshoes but didn’t use them.
