Red Deer, Sawtooth, Algonquin, and Coney Island from Beaver Reservoir TH.
There is something to be said for sitting down and reviewing summer hike photos three months later.  I think this is the last of my overdue trip reports.  Though these peaks are all summitted from the same trail head, the days described took place about a m...

Mount Audubon to Shoshoni Peak Traverse.
I'm sitting to write about this day a few months later now.  Hopefully the memory hasn't gotten too fuzzy! Dan and I attempted Mount Audubon in January, and got pretty close to the summit before deciding to turn back.  It was windy as heck, and I think we w...

Time Passes: Two Days at Monarch Lake.
It's that time of year again.  Already the Aspen are putting on a show.  Already the air is crisp, often below freezing in the morning.  Already the sweet aroma of Autumnal decay is in the air.  Earlier in the year I was talking to my friend Gary, and he as...

Notchtop Mountain/Spire via South Gully.
Notchtop has been a summit I have been both looking forward to and dreading.  It's one of the few things I have left to do in the park, and most often climbed via a number of technical routes.   Two years ago I took the Flattop Trail up with the intention o...

Two days in Indian Peaks.
While the days detailed below took place two weeks apart, they both start from the same place and cover some of the same terrain, so it seems logical to group them as one. On week one, I set off for the Fourth of July trail head, and planned an extensive da...

Highly Lonesome in Indian Peaks Wilderness.
Chronologically, this day actually took place before the previous post- it was my last longer training run before the race.   My goal for the day was both to run the loop at a reasonable pace, and summit the two Boulder County/Indian Peaks Wilderness peaks ...

2017 Never Summer 100K.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... I'd looked lustfully at this race for it's first two years of existence.  I love the Never Summer range, or Ni-Chebe-Chii .  I have now climbed the vast majority of the peaks there, and enjoyed long and...

The Ten Mile Traverse.
This wasn't something that was super on my must do list, but my wife signed up the ride the Firecracker 50 in Breckenridge, and asked if I wanted to go, so why not?  I found a few trip reports, all the way from the way faster than I can go one by Anton Krup...

Bear Lake to Milner Pass to Bear Lake.
If memory serves me correctly, Dan and I discussed doing the Continental Divide traverse as described in Fosters book in 2013, shortly after we met.  It sounded like a pretty big day hiking wise.  While doable with two people, it would require both to drive...
