Allison and I hiked up to Castle Peak. It is one the highest mountains in Colorado, but pretty easy to climb. Here are some pictures.
The top of Castle Creek road at the trailhead.
Looking down form Montezuma Basin.
Snowmass and Capitol off in the distance. Maroon Bells in the foreground.
Looking south towards Crested Butte.
To the southeast.
Neighboring Counundrum Peak.
And in color.
With over 4,000 feet of vertical climbing, the trip down is much faster than the trip up. Especially when there’s plenty of snow to slide down…
