Yesterday, I went on a club hike led by Denise Snow, who led my trip to Switzerland and is leading my trip to the Dolomites this year. We hiked from the Spruce Creek trail head outside of Breckenridge and connected to the Wheeler National Recreation Trail to hike over to Copper Mountain Ski Resort. It was a beautiful high route over two passes, each at 12,400 feet. It was sunny all day but extremely windy on the second pass. We caught a free bus from Copper to Frisco to retrieve our cars.
