Why Is It Called Colorado?

Here's one reason.

Mount Lincoln from near Hoosier Pass.

The aspens are turning, obviously.

Ian and Lori setting up camp at Kite Lake.

The other four are going to climb Mounts Lincoln, Democrat, and Bross tomorrow. Since I already climbed those in '07, I'm going to head over to the other side of Hoosier Pass and climb Quandary Peak instead. Here's what it looks like:

The trailhead is already above 10,000 feet, so treeline is not far up, and most of the hike will be on alpine tundra and bare rock. I plan to start around 4 AM on Friday morning so I can avoid any afternoon storms.
