Ascent Trip ReportThe precipitation precipitated a negated Mt. Big Chief attempt, our second shut-down down due to weather and third total for time. On the way back, we thought about a quick redemption run up Sugarloaf - one new mountain would justify the long drawn out drive on worn out Old Stage Road. It was a great idea - the well maintained trail was aesthetically gorgeous, especially in the mist. The summit was very pleasant and the views of the Mount Vigil - Knights group was fantastic, as was the symmetric layering of Garfield, Cameron and Pikes. Before we decided to head out, we both checked off a new Summit Something - and then had a fun and light little jog down!
