The above photograph was taken on an Iphone 4s. The location is above treeline, at approximately 12 thousand feet. As usual, we didn’t take enough hiking stuff (water, food, stick, map, yada yada) and found ourselves breathing hard with headaches from not drinking enough water along the way. We wanted to walk further, amongst the giant mountains surrounding us, thinking better of it in our state of discomfort. Hurry spring., we’re coming back.
I believe the mountain to be known in Breckenridge, Colorado as Old Baldy. I’ve lived in Colorado since 1998. There are many references to Mt. Baldy in different areas I have been to. We have one on the front range outside of Colorado Springs, the one on Boreas Pass and I am sure there are others.
