Hiking Hoosier Pass for Wordless Wednesday!

While hiking the Hoosier Pass trail, I discovered something crazy! For July, anyway…

Danny and I drove south from Breckenridge on Highway 9 and found the trailhead at the top of Hoosier Pass. Don’t be fooled by thinking you’re already on the tippy top. There’s some elevation to gain on this moderate hike and monster views too!

On the way up to the top we discovered a 500 meter snow field! No, I didn’t take my tape measurer… This much snow in July? Wow!

I could’ve used poles or ski boots. The snowy path proved a bit sketchy. Luckily, my daughter’s dog, Lady, kept me upright.

Since we were soon above tree-line, we enjoyed vistas along the way.

Even at 13,000 feet, we found wildflowers!

And someone had fun with rock stacking.

We stopped to rest and take an obligatory selfie, of course.

      1. We had skiing in Lake Tahoe area into the summer because of the massive snowfall, and now it has “loaded up” the lake with more water than ever – water that we need here of course!
