On Saturday, July 21 2012 I decided to take the family on a nice hike. The weather forecast was calling for sun and warmth until the day before when it changed to clouds in the morning and sun in the afternoon. We decided to take the chance and go anyway.
Here's a few shots from the first scramble I ever did in the Rockies. In the fall of 1999 we went with a group from the office. At the time I thought that this was one of the only peaks that you could do without ropes and stuff. Little did I know that there are hundreds of peaks that can be done with only a good set of lungs and some mountain 'smarts'.
We hiked up Galatea Creek to the 3rd lake with both kids (ages 10, 12) and the dog (6 pound pom) no problem. The kids did get tired at the 2nd lake but we managed to coax them all the way to the third.
