Nancy's Grassy Peak
Sunday July 16, 2017 hike up "Nancy's Grassy Peak" outside of Silverton, Colorado. That is just the nickname given to the unnamed peak by a local resident (though it did not seem very grassy at the top...). Great weather and cool temperatures.
This was a wildflower weekend, not a peak weekend. And there were loads of wildflowers, whole fields as you can see below, on this hike. I need to spend some time and try to identify these beauties.
We contoured below bigger Ohio Peak, from left to right, to keep elevation gain to a minimum. Total hike was less than 5 miles. We tried to follow game trails but they were all over the place! Side hilling can be a bit hard on the feet.
We did see 5 bucks with big antlers still covered with velvet, but no photos unfortunately. They were a bit wary of us, but we still had nice views!
