Snuck over state lines and climbed a couple Colorado 14ers last week.

Good job. I climbed them years ago at the end of September with similar snow depth but also with 200+ people. I like your timing.

Mother Nature has not yet closed down the backcountry, and a few folks have taken advantage. Let's see your reports!

Here's mine from a week ago (PS- Notch Peak is highly recommended!):

Finally catching up on some trip reports. I'll start with day 2 of our Labor Day trip. This was a very scenic loop with fun and challenging terrain! Mountain goats, lakes, sunny skies, peaks... who wouldn't like it!

It's probably too much to hope that a lot of that blue ribbon scenery went up in smoke last summer.

Other than Montana, it looks like the western states have the second lowest snowpack on record, just behind 2012. I'm amazed/concerned how little snow there is when playing in the Boise foothills, it feels like March and not January.
