|Heading up Crescent Mountain. About 900ft of gain in the first mile.|
|My house is just left of center in this pic|
|Starr Peak to the left|
|Pikes Peak and the front range foothills|
|Looking down my canyon. Not hard to find hills here.|
|Blue Mountain. I did a point to point "run" up this from my house a couple years ago. Since then I've found trails to the top. This is in the Coal Creek (or Jeffco) Mountain Park.|
