Colorado Adventure 2009 | Day 6
Thursday, August 6, 2009
After making it to Montezuma I took a right and started climbing the many switchbacks to Santa Fe Peak.
Just getting out of the trees
If you look closely, you can see a number of the switchbacks
Off-camber section…it’s a long way down
Near the end of the trail
Headed back down
View of the trail from near the top
After heading back down to Montezuma again, I decided to run the Saints John, Glacier Ridge and Deer Creek loop.
What used to be a building, is now a pile of wood at Saints John
Wild Irishman Mine site
The trail on top of Glacier Ridge. The trail on the left is Deer Creek.
An old shack up on Glacier Ridge
I just love the look of winding trails along the ridge
Soon I made it to the T-intersection with the Deer Creek trail. I took a left and headed down to Montezuma, yet again.
Then I came across these guys…..Rocky Mountain Goats
This one stopped licking the rock for a minute to look at me as I approached…
…then went right back to licking the rock
This one was posing for me
Storm rolling in
Glacier Ridge from Deer Creek
Headed back down Deer Creek to Montezuma
To be continued…
