Default Twin Cone 10/08/10

Today Nick Andrews and I blew off work and went wheeling up Twin Cone. I brought my wife and daughter. It was a beautiful day, although a bit cold and windy up on top. There was a smattering of snow here and there on the trail, and the peaks between Jefferson and Breckenridge to the west were VERY white.

It was the first time for either of us on that trail. We really liked it. There were nice aspen groves and lots of beaver ponds down low. About halfway up the trail the fun begins with lots of good sized rock obstacles. Then there is a gnarly rocky loose dirt hill climb which we both bypassed.

We went all the way to the top, then dropped back down into the trees and had lunch (and hot chocolate) before heading back to the highway. All in all a great way to spend the day!

Thanks for ditching work and going Nick. It was a blast!
