bob is being mean and making fun of me for choosing the standard route up antero, but that's just because the rental car was in my name and not his, and we didn't know what kind of the shape the 4x4 portion of the road was in, or what kind of shape the road out to the other trailhead was in. i also wasn't super sure what to expect from bob as the altitude gave him some trouble the day before and we were still looking at 15-16 mile day with big gain and pumpkiny weather. oh...and the hardest hike of all 3 yet to come... :STP:

i enjoyed the hike up to antero. the part through the woods a bit mundane but above timberline i thought the hike and scenery were spectacular. the last mile out to the summit was particularly cool. clouds rolled in on me while on the summit with a big temp drop and snow flurries. i met bobby rockets just off the summit and he had great weather up top. i took the standard way down and bob cruised down a gulley. we met up near timberline and hiked in the rain for a little bit. the rest of the hike down was uneventful and pleasant. bob deserted me, so i drank my summit brew on the final 2 miles. it was way too cold to have it up top :D
