something in the park

Postby tlerunner » Thu Jan 17, 2013 7:46 pm

I am climbing something in RMNP this Saturday, maybe Hagues or Fairchild. Possibly Hallett. Looking to do a 6:00 am start.

Let me know if you are interested. I did Mummy Mountain a couple of weeks ago and barely needed snowshoes and it does not appear much has changed.

FYI- Saturday is Winter Trails Day at the Park and Ride Lot neat Glacier Basin, may be a bit crowded: http://rockymountainhikingtrails.blogspot.com/2013/01/winter-trails-day-in-rocky-mountain.html
We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, and winding streams... as "wild". Only to the white man was nature a "wilderness".

What route did you take for Mummy?

I was hoping from the title that this would be something a little creepier... Like you saw a ghost or something in Cheeseman Park.

Sorry to lead you on with the title. Tough competition these days, i.e. Bigfoot, glowing eyes, etc. :)

For Mummy I took the Lawn Lake up to the Black Canyon trail, which had seen no travel. It was a short bush wack though deep snow to tree line. From there it was mostly blown dry to the summit. Saw a herd of big horns at ~12k'.
