Monday, 09/02/13 James Peak

09/02/13

13,294 ft.
11.53 miles
4,143 vert.

Allison, Sierra and I were able to finally coordinate with Dave and Kiefer for a nice hike up James Peak from the Moffat Tunnel on Monday.  Prior to having kids, Allison and I would get out with Dave (and various other friends) and the dogs for mountain adventures, which seemed like almost every weekend since 2005.  It had been over 3 years since we have hiked together and we did not miss a beat, was like old times.

Bushwhacking after ~4 miles of trail from Moffat Tunnel

Lots of small tarns and ponds on the way up.

Dave and I managed to hop all these rocks.

Allison gave it a shot

But decided to not risk getting her shoes wet

The dogs were happy to get in the water





Sierra's first high peak all summer, she was long overdue.




Getting a little tired on the descent, but still did great for an old dog
