Sun 6 Oct 13 A few photos from my quick two-day run through the Enchantments this weekend. I’ll add more when I get a minute. Couldn’t have asked for nicer October conditions.
Just gorgeous–how close are these mountains to your home?
About an hour and forty-five minutes to the trailhead from our front door. So, close!
Of course then from the trailhead it’s a sustained uphill hike (10 miles, 6000 ft of elevation gain) to the first good views. And a couple more hours to climb anything from there. Definitely worth it though.
That snow looks fresh. Is it winter now?
It was very fresh snow. Not really winter yet though. We had a couple days of mountain snow right before my hike, but it’s been sunny and nice ever since then. Probably my favorite hiking/photo conditions.
