Started the hike with Joe and JJ but soon lost contact with them as they motored up the canyon. We were taking our time with pics and soaking in the colors. So it's safe to say we were not disappointed with the autumn show as we headed up canyon. Reached the spring area and aspens which begins the climb and ends the autumn show. However, the second half of the hike has it's own show with great views all the way to the summit.

As we approached the summit ran into Joe, JJ, and Chumley heading back down. There was also a large group maybe 25 in total but they decided not to summit and stayed on the saddle below so we had the top to ourselves. Of course the views are great with 360's and a clear day to enjoy it.

After 20 minutes headed back down and caught up with Chumley as he was finishing up checking out the plane crash site. I took his word for it that the climb was very steep and declined to check for myself. We took more time exploring the foliage on the way back particularly around the spring. A lot of color packed into a small area and was the peak location on the mountain. After that it was back to camp and some beverages around a nice camp fire :D
