Last fall, Sept 18, 2011, I decided to go up into a range of mountains that, up to now, I hadn't done much hiking in. The Never Summer range on the west side of RMNP (Rocky Mountain National Park). I was hoping to see a little bit of fall color, but skip the snow. Well, as it turned out, we had some snow a few days earlier, but it all melted off at the lower elevations. One reason I picked the Baker Gulch trail is because it goes up to Baker Pass that I had hiked up to last summer. Only, I came up from the other side of the continental divide. Thought it'd be neat to reach the same place from the opposite direction. Didn't quite make it, but it was a great hike.
