I love adventure and exploring. Currently a school psychologist who tries to spend my free-time hiking, climbing, fishing, and celebrating with a good beer in Colorado. On Instagram @ericschuettephotography Cheers!!!

Underrated Hike

This area is one of the more underrated in the front range. The views are awesome and you will likely encounter only a handful of people

Beautiful

It's hard to get much better than this area in any season...

One of the more underrated trails in the park

The Mt. Ida hike is one of the more underrated in the park. The hike itself is a great one with a high chance of wildlife but there are many more opportunities to explore beyond Mt. Ida.

Good safe winter hike

Safe meaning it is almost always avy safe if you stick to the ridge (similar to its more popular and taller neighbor, Quandary) but the winds can be brutal. Ive known really big climbers get blown off their feet...Still a very winter option!

Good, little-used option

This is a good option for Elbert to avoid the masses you will find on several of the more popular/known routes

Great Views!

The summit of Crystal is one of the best views in the Tenmile range!
