 Evan‘s West Ridge from Spaulding

Short hike, so short on the words, I found this to be a great, quick hike from Denver. I took my time playing a bit off trail to the summit of Spaulding, peeking over the Sawtooth, and staying faithful to Evan's west Ridge versus the trail.

Until the summit of Evan's saw 2 people on the trail.
