W0/SR-079 Geissler Mountain East 08/02/2013

Erin and I spent 5 days on a big, fun Colorado camping loop.  We started off in Fort Collins, and camped our first night on Guenella Pass.  Thursday morning we drove over the pass, then headed for Buena Vista.  On our way into BV, I grabbed W0/SP-112, Castle Rock.  After that quick summit, we were on our way to Mt Princeton Hot Springs for a leisurely afternoon in the river.  We had dinner with the SOTA Goat expedition guys Thursday night at Eddyline Brewery, then headed to Twin Lakes to camp.

Friday morning after driving over Independence Pass, we hiked up the Lost Lake Trail to attach Geissler Mountain East, W0SR-079.  This was a beautiful hike, with the Colorado wildflowers in full bloom.
