I was looking around for a good hike to do, and Brown's Peak seemed like a good choice: no forecast of rain along with moderate temperatures. This was my first time to do this hike, and it did not disappoint!

I decided to drive up 87 to 188, and then come back down to El Oso Road and get to the trail head that way. I believe that most any passenger car could have made it, but a HCV would be preferable. In any event, a 4WD would not be needed.

It was an easy hike up to the saddle, and then it was a bit steep going up the chute to the summit. I enjoyed the climb up and down, and at no time did I think that there was any danger -- there was no exposure to speak of as far as I was concerned. The views at the top were cool, although it was hazy today.

The only animals that I saw were a cow in the middle of El Oso Road on the way in, and a couple of hummingbirds just below the summit. One of the hummers was very interested in the red shoestrings on my shoes!
