Patty, Jack, Wendy and Bryan had a great hike to the summit of Hahn's Peak (near Steamboat Lake, CO). The highlight of the hike was the rock scramble for the last 1/4mile. The pictures of the peak show the rocky top pretty well (barren...no trees, just the old fire watch tower). Some mountain details: - we drove to the "normal" trail head so the round trip hike was just under 4 miles (in the winter you can not drive to the "normal" trail head so the length is about double). - start at 9400 feet, gain 1400 feet, summit is at 10800 feet. Jack was a little slow at the start of the hike -- apparently he was not excited to hike up an old road. When we turned off the old road (~1/2 mile into the hike) onto a real trail he got excited. Hoping from rock to rock up the trail was fun. Then he found a snowbank and threw snowballs at Patty and Bryan -- this was especially fun! (Thanks to Patty for being such a good sport on this one!). When we hit the rock scramble close to the top, Jack just took off! Seems the harder the trail, the more fun he has.
