1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Hiking with dogs~Peak 9- 13,195ft & Peak 10- 13,633ft ~ Colorado   Thu Sep 24, 2015 3:34 pm

We got in a great fall hike this past Sat. Took Meredith and her 2 up 2 peaks, Ken also joined us. Time was not 2 bad, 7hrs45min, 8.2miles RT and 2,957ft of elevation gain. We drove up the Breckenridge ski resort to the peak 9 restaurant and parked at the top of the ski lift and started there.  true 4 wheel rides and trucks can make it much farther up the road then our rides.

here is our track

Once we started we were quickly met by a giant moose on the road, kind of cool, lucky he ran off though and did not want to put up a fight, to fast to get a pic.
we made good time on the 4X4 road up to the saddle between 9&10, thats where my pics start.


looking up to peak 9


Ken and Mer making their way up




happy huskies


looking over to peak 10, you can see the road to the left that we would take up

pretty much where the 4X4 road ends on peak 10


looking over to crystal lake and peak on the right, did that a few yrs back, on this thread somewhere




Goats on Peak 10, had to wait for them to summit before we did


Sierra heading up to peak 10




my lucky shot of the day Smile


Peak 10 family summit




Mer with her summit 10 drink


me on peak 10 summit with 9 in the back ground




Denali on the summit


Sierra and I on peak 10 summit






Sierra's action shot


Just below the saddle heading back down to the cars







somewhere right around here i got to pull a dead mouse out of Denali's mouth with Mer prying it open.

It was a great 2 peak day, it was a first for Ken and Mer. I'm hoping to get out at least one more time before the snow hits. Hope you enjoy the images, maybe Mer will post some of hers.

Till our next adventure!

Amazing pics, especially of the dogs, "Ghost and Denali", "Denali on the summit" and your "lucky shot of the day " are perfection! Have to say to, the Sierra and Jack pic, the one that's in the HOTM too, is adorable!

I love those pictures. I want to go to Colorado now! Second from the bottom is my favorite; I'm a sucker for pictures of blue skies. It looks like Sierra's practicing to be a mountain goat!

Great pictures! My heart is full of envy...

P.S. in the 9th picture, Denali looks like he left the stove on or forgot he had to pick his kid up from school. The beautiful scenery made him have an existential crisis.
