There's a place, an area, a gem of a trail I found last summer. Kinda hate to write about it, because I just want to keep it for myself. But, that's selfish (which doesn't bother me too much : ). And, it's an unnecessary worry because from what I can see the number of people going hiking continues to decline. So, if you're interested in a cool kind of out of the way, but not too far of a drive, hike, then check this out.
The Never Summer range of mountains is a section of country I haven't spent much time in (but have done so since this particular hike). The range of mountains forms a big chunk of Rocky Mountain National Park's western boundary. I'd seen a lot of it as I came down off of Trailridge road over the years, and even did some hiking on a little of it with Will. But, I'd "never" been on it's western slopes. So, last summer figured it was about time. Summer of 2010.
