Currently the only shot that includes Lara - taken the day before while enroute to COS, but she was definitely with us Tuesday.
The Barr Trailhead, where we parked the car and then walked a short distance to the cog train depot.
[I don't know why various sources have different distance & gain.]
A 1.5-hr ride to the summit. .. The train will be departing without us!
Eager mountaineers all as we set off from the summit just before 10:00 am, Tuesday.
Still above treeline but making progress - and still having fun.
Right, Steve was able to join our gnarly crew. .. We definitely caught some awesome lightning & thunder later, but far below treeline.
1:00 and a little beyond half way down now, lunch at the creek at the Barr Trail Camp.
A unique spot along the Barr Trail - even more unique with us! .. We got back to the TH at 4:15, so about 6 1/4 hours down, which is pretty good time - then on to Victory Pizza!
Wednesday morning survivors - and still smiling. :) .. From the top: 8, 10 & 13 - Junior Rangers and Junior Mountaineers!
