I had Good Friday off, so I took a solo trip up to the Crags, on the back side of Pike's Peak. I had to walk the last mile of the road up to the trailhead because there were such deep ruts in the snow. There was every kind of trail condition imaginable: dry, wet, muddy, snowy, icy, lava-ridden?!?! Just kidding about that last one. There were some breathtaking views that translate very poorly through a camera. I don't know how much winter/spring mountain hiking I'll do after this, but it was a great experience.
