Forum Rules
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~ Rogers Peak 13,391 & Mt. Warren 13,307, Colorado    Thu Aug 11, 2016 7:42 pm

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!

Great pictures - lovely hike. Poor Sierra - I hope she heals soon Sad

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

You truly have magnificent country!

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