    Red Cone / Radical Hill / Deer Creek, Colorado

    I've been itching for this day for a few years now, getting back to Red Cone. I had only done it once about 4 years ago in my LJ and it was instantly my favorite trail.

    We got an early start and hit the trail head right at 10am. About half way up we stopped at a small stream and just sat for a few and listened to it trickle by.

    A while later after leaving the tree line we were able to see the peak. That is Webster Pass trail zig-zagging in the back there.

    Getting closer - dont look down...

    Yay!

    Before getting back in the Jeep I had to actually walk to the edge just to see where the trail actually went. It really drops off in a hurry and is almost completely blind to start off. My girlfriend snapped this a few seconds after we started down, again, it just disappears about half way down.

    And looking back up. Predictably, the pics dont really do it justice.

    Did I mention, dont look down?

    The Red Cone trail ends where it meets up with the Webster Pass trail on this saddle between two peaks.

    Then on to Radical Hill. Oh my. If you need your pucker meter calibrated, this is a good spot.

    Then the final push up this last bit.

    The Deer Creek trail is a meandering trail down through the valley on the other side of that climb, No pics because weather was moving in and we didnt want to get caught.

    That's it! Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

    Yeah, the clouds move quickly up there. You can see the rain coming up the valley in the pano pic from the saddle. Stringing 3 trails together was a bit optimistic and we were pretty tired once all said and done. Luckily the girlfriend is a good sport.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
