i was gonna call you last night, but it got late.
lets think about doing the Longs Peak/Estes Cone area. Theres a really nice basecamp at Moore Park that would give us access to some nice places with way less people around.
a. less crowded
b. awesome scenery
c. neat history area
d. less crowded
and it'll be less crowded.”
email me a phone # where you are...
“and I'll call ya now.”
“You could go into Chasm Lake too!
Or is it a pond?”
No phone #...
And check out the panoramic shot at the bottome of the page!”
“What a wonderful view from the summit!”
“If you want solitude and a great extended weekend or more hike, go up to Uncompaghre peak from the south. Follow the Big Blue Creek valley to the mountain. Spectacular scenery lots of little hikes if you want to do them, and no people. Well not completely. There is a camping area about 4 and a half miles into the hike at Slide Lake, but once you pass that you are alone. In 5 days we saw two people. It was awesome. Email me for mmore info or ask away on here...”
Nice Report, Mr. Roam Around
“It looked like perfect weather and a great place to hike. I'll have to poke around there later.
BTW, this guy who was out hiking while you waited at the trailhead sounds like a real JERK. Quite rude, if you ask me.
Anyway, thanks for sharing.”
“Excellent Job on the Trip Report!
LOL.... not only did his watch have the wrong time but it also was off on the date by 2 days!
Good thing we like that Dork.”
“one more time for the fun of it:
“whats a ewker?”
“I thought I told you that story. He He He.
Anyhoo, It's great to know people like you guise who can take a DORK move like that so well. I' d rather hike & camp with youse than with the finest people on Earth, and I mean that.
BTW Stikmon- those pics were taken just last Sunday, the 17th. But I think Roam already must have told you that.”
“lol, i know the story, just thought it'd be funny since you posted under your "wannabee" moniker.”
“Lets do Mummy Mtn in June, early in the month. Camp at Lawn Lake on Friday night, yeah, night hike in.
Summit Mummy on Saturday, camp again at Lawn Lake (base camp style).
Hike out on Sunday.
i betcha Gemini will go "whhhhaaaaaaa" again if we post pics of the trip.”
“sounds like fun. It'd be light for most of the trip in.
And we'd have Gemini go cry to her Mummy.”
“OH OH.... Can I go, Can I go? PLease?”
“Didn't get enough of that hike last time?
BTW, which Feeney is this?”
“Ummm... it's Mr. Feeney”
“And we won't be trying to do close to 13.5 miles in 6 feet of snow this time....”
“whaaaaaaaaaaaa all she wants...some one will daube her cryin eyes.”
“Well, how about the weeend of June 4?”
“see the trips page!”

“What time would we leave?”
“after work on Friday. I maybe could get out a little early.”

“Here are pictures from today's Chasm Lake Dayhike!
Starting elevation: 9,357'
Ending Elevation: 11,812'
Elevation gain: 3,077'
Total Mileage Roundtrip: 8.4 miles
What a great hike! It was sunny and hot out today so it was a perfect day! Blue skys were all around us!”
“awsome photos...those are the first that I've ever seen of Chasm Lake, now I want to do it even more than ever. thanks.”
“Ummm... that was Adventurist not Eddie.
But thanks anyway!”
Funny hiking story from today!
“I'm sure Eddie will appreciate me telling this story.
On our hike today we were hiking out of treeline into the Alpine Tundra and the sun was really beating down. I had already put on my SPF 2000 sunblock in the morning so I was good to go. Well... Eddie usually carries his sunblock in one of those snack size Tupperware containers. He calls out to Mrs Adventurist and I and says "I need sunblock. Anybody want some?" And opens the container... Well unfortunately he had grabbed the wrong container it appeared because what he had in front of him was a Tupperware of red sprinkles that you would put on cakes or icecream. Unfortunately the red sprinkles didn't block the sun's intense rays as one would hope! Poor Eddie!

“LOL, thats Eddie - first his watch and now this......
so I guess he got a little crispy, eh?”
“I know Eddie and Danielle looked a little red at the end of the day but not too bad.”
“very cool pics!”
now thats funny...
“I'm thinking of a new trail name...
or maybe Red Jimmie.
thanks for the clarification...I'm a bit crispy and still beer dazed. 2 days on the river with the sun beating down, consuming mass quantities of Coors Golden.”
I like Red Jimmie!”
“Bringing this back up top.

“Great pics! Looks like a ton of fun. I cant wait to get out there this fall and hike with yall!”
“EVERY weekend em, theres someone doing something out here every weekend!”
“oh, and the more, the merrier too!”
“Thanks again. Fall is an awesome time out here, so I've heard. Elk are buggling and the aspens are golden.”
Went to Mueller SP...
“In October a few years ago, and the Aspens were stupendous!. I have this one perfect photo...golden aspen in the foreground with a green pine in the middle ground framing the aspen, with Pikes Peak in the background with the perfect blue sky framing all.”
“We should be out there by Sept 10 so I will be ready to start hiking that next weekend! When are the aspen at their peak color?”
“i have no idea, but i got here in mid november last fall and was told that i missed the end of the elk bugleing by just a couple of weeks.
you probably have really good timeing.”
