Ascent Trip Report

I hiked this butte late in the day, after spending a few amusing minutes at a gas-mart in Springfield asking if they sold roadmaps of Colorado, preferably a DeLorme. The lady at the counter was completely confused by my request and had to phone someone. I found their display and yes, they had a DeLorme. Even after buying it, she was still on the phone trying to explain what was going on.

Anyway, it's easy to find the buttes, as they stick up above the flat countryside. The hike is fast and there is no trick to it.
