Saturday morning Ben and crew hiked down as they were only staying one night. Relaxation was on tap for the morning. The early afternoon adventure was to summit Bald Knob. Dru, Eric, and I cut straight up looking for the steepest pitches to get us to the top. The views were worth it. We saw Aspen Mountain and several other cloud covered mountains. The hut was full (16 people) Saturday night. A group of 10 came up from Carbondale and Glennwood Springs. Three others from Boulder also made the trip. I met someone from Tomahawk WI that knows a few of my friends that grew up there. It was a fun night. Later at night Eric, Justin (from Carbondale), and I made a pretty sick sled run through the woods. Sunday morning the run got a little out of control as the mist made it very fast.
It was a great weekend. I pretty much don't like winter and snow, but I know I would really miss weekends like this if I lived in a place without winter. I just hope it continues to stay in the mountains.
