Very easy trail, but very scenic.


obligatory shot of the trail dog. even seasoned mountain dogs start to huff and puff and this altitude


when you reach the peak, there is a large mound of rocks that people have shaped into an observation point. it over looks other nearby trails and some alpine lakes. you can see loch lomond trail about 1000 feet below, still blocked by snow. there is also a guestbook to sign.


apparently the pika (chipmunks) are quite handy when it comes to woodworking as well as having computer skills. not only has be built himself a spot to get food and water from travelers, but you can get email from him by signing the guestbook.


people leave messages, trinkets and such at the peak too


loch lomond from observation point, created from snowpack runoff


the money shot


not a bad way to spend a saturday.

well since thats the nicest compliment i've gotten in a while, here is an encore of a few i took last summer. no rubi, but the same great scenery.

the end of sante fe peak trail, there is a huge network of trails in this area including the famed red cone and radical hill. a great day up here, the trail dog spent the day chasing mountain critters around while i plopped down and read a book.


the end of the pomeroy lakes trail. you start out in a ghost town (st. elmo) and pass abandoned mines along the way. when you hit this place, you have total solitude.


last one, mt. antero. also shows what i traded in for the rubi - a 2002 land rover discovery. biggest POS i have ever owned.

Damn Mike you are awesome. You have provided me with amazing memories and you have the dog of my deams...Now I just need house with a big yard so I can get one. Getting a wiemy up here is harder then adopting a child. The background investigation that the Wiemy association does is very picky.

Thanks again Mike.. :D
