As flatlanders, we never intended to hike the entire trail. But, we let our curiousity guide us up and around a bit. Because it was the beginning of May and there was still snow here and there down by the trailhead, not many folks were...More

Headed up through Black Hawk and rode through the Mountains and headed to Estes Park, Co. to see the trees changing and headed to Loveland Co. What an awesome view to see the entire drive.

It was not an easy walk to Chasm Lake. We did Mills Lake in the morning and we were so tired when we came back from there. We started our hike to Mills Lake at 7am and took us 5 hours round-trip. And in the...More

We have hiked Longs Peak twice via the Keyhole route - the first time in early June, when we could not make the summit because of ice (and lack of preparation for an ice climb!) - and the second time in late July 2016, when...More
