    YEAH Kathy babe read Becky's post again it was 930 for thr trailhead location. those of us in town still met at 830....Great hike with wonderful people....we were lucky was cool cause we were in the trees for a while and when we broke above treeline the clouds moved in and a real nice cool breeze....I was wrong according to one of the sites the trail ends at about 12000 ft I was thinking it was lower ...got a little winded near the top

    Kathy Babe - I think you misread Becky's comment. Since we were leaving the PnR at 8:30 her message was to Ken that we would meet him at the trailhead at 9:30 - not that the start time was 9:30 at the PnR. No rudeness at all from Becky - just informational as to how long it would take us to reach the TH

  • Kathy B.

    you send an email out after midnight to change the meetup time an hour. That is just plain rude. I pass this time and do my own hike today.

    Any body else have concerns about the traffic on I-70 at the tunnel construction? Saturday it was an hour wait (1:00pm) the 5 miles heading west this side of the tunnel const. Is it better on weekdays?
