Sunday, 6/07/09 Red Mountain, Red Peak and Hoosier Ridge

Homie and I got out for several 13ers, starting from Hoosier Pass. This was an excellent route, lots of time above treeline, easy walking/jogging on the wide ridge. It took us 3:55 going at a casual to moderate pace for the ~12 miles/3,500 vertical. The weather was decent, but a bit cold and windy at times. Snow chased us back to the car at noon where the wives were waiting after they had finished their own version of the hike. Finally starting to feel well acclimated. Stopped for awesome burgers/fries at Smashburger in Silverthorne.
