In a last ditch effort to save the weekend (we were gonna camp but rain was in the forecast all weekend 60% chance in the mountains) we looked for a close summit to take the dogs on and i settled on Rogers with maybe Warren. We took the Mt. Evans road up to the nature center and started our climb there. Rogers was only 3 miles one way from that point. We made great time and were on the summit before 10am. Ken was tired i was ready for more and the pups were fine. We chilled just off the summit as it was super rocky. I said to Ken i really wanted to go for Mt. Warren, just 1.1miles farther, but due to the rocks Sierra would not make it. I though with just a 1.5mile trek back to the road to hit the real trail Ken and Sierra would be fine on their own and Jack and I could hike over to Warren and end at summit lake and have Ken pick us up. Only later did i learn it was not so easy for ken to get back and him and Sierra got caught up in loose rock and slid down park of the side of the mountain, Sierra hurt her hind leg and is still in recovery Sad we both learned lessons on this hike. I still had a great day on the mountains and was only crushed when i found out what happened.
Jack and I covered 5.5 miles and gained 2,125ft of elevation and it took 5hrs, chilling on each summit.
ok on to what you really want to see, Pictures!

Is that a honeybee on flower? Looks a bit too big but I can't tell from the pic...

Looks like fun. The 'air lifted' picture i find funny for some reason. Probably because Sierra is just so cute whatever the situation.
