Tabeguache Peak 14,155′ North Gully from Browns Creek 4/8/2015

We headed down the night before and camped near the Browns Creek  trailhead. There’s a ton of sweet camping spots nearby. You know you’re in for a long day when you’re camping in the juniper. The alarm went off at 4am and we were on the trail at 6:15. We were treated to a very […]

Well after we finished WalMart chutes me and Gary went to Prost and had a beer and some sausage and tried to figure out what to do. Allison wanted to ski but 70 was probabily going to close really soon. I ended up heading back to Edgewater for the night which I think was the […]
