I wanted something with decent mileage & aeg, but not too far of a drive, so I headed up to Thompson Peak with Daniela. We got started around 7:00 to cool temps & cloudy skies. Saw a handful of people on the way up to Bell Pass, then nobody after that for a few miles. We saw one mule deer while on Prospector Trail. As soon as we hit the road for the peak, the clouds disappeared and we had full sun--ugh. I whined my way up to the top, where as soon as we sat down for a snack, the clouds returned and stayed with us for the rest of the hike.

The return was quiet and uneventful, but I had warned Daniela that as soon as we hit Bell Pass, it would be a zoo--and I was right. We made friends with a large group of friendly mountain bikers who were doing some sort of training, and we also managed to make another biker blush, so we had a successful day all around.
