Ascent Trip ReportHiked up and returned using Audubon Trail, continuing to Paiute Peak. This was my first mountain climbed over 13,000 feet and represented my personal altitude record for several years, so the memory of this climb is special to me. Perhaps more than anything I remember looking down at small blue ponds from the top of Paiute. I also remember carefully considering the weather atop Audubon before committing to the traverse over -- the first time I'd done this in the Rockies, but not the last.
