Hiking Twin Sisters, RMNP 24 July 2011

  IM003793 IM003794 IM003795 IM003796 IM003797  
  Twin Sisters is a pair of peaks just on the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, at 11 thousand feet. At the trailhead - Dave, Patty, Bob, Erick -- with Longs Peak in the background with the Keyhole notch visible on Long's south side. About a mile up the trail is a great overlook, again with Longs in the background - Erick, Bob, Dave, Sue. At treeline, a good view to the south-west. You can see the trees getting short and scraggly here at tree-line.

  At the saddle between two peaks - a fresh Carribean banana, in Colorado, at 11,000 feet. From the south peak, looking down to the saddle - Patty and Sue sitting in the middle down there. Closer-in of Patty and Sue finishing lunch while the guys went to the south peak. Erick, on top of Twin Sisters, with Longs Peak in the background. Bob

  Overlook back down towards the trailhead, afternoon now (shadows are different). About 2:45 going up, 2:15 down over ~7.7 miles according to Dave's GPS.
