Details

We had a great outing! The temperature range was 65 degrees at onset to well over 70 degrees as we departed the trailhead and ascended to the summit of Mount Galbraith. The wildlife was absent during this trip. Several mountain thrushes and species of insects were on and near the trail. The early spring flowers were abundant along any watercourse. The trip was entirely devoid of snow and ice.




Notes

I am labeling this hike as part of the 14er series in order to allow participants to participate on hikes that involve progressively longer distances, increasing elevation gain and greater time commitments. These series of hikes will culminate in an ascent of a nearby Colorado fourteener within the next 4 - 6 weeks.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
