    • Clear Creek County, Colorado; Grays-Torreys Quad, Dry Gulch to the Citadel near Mt. Trelease, Hagar Mountain and Pettingell Peak. Photos from ridge capture Herman Gulch; this is the Continental Divide not far from Loveland Ski area and Eisenhower tunnel. Area gets snow dumps in Winter, and was an unstable snow pack / avalanche-risky zone last Winter.

      • Grays-Torreys being 14ers, are higher than the Citadel (a 13er) by about 1000 feet. They’re beautiful in their own right, and with the rain this summer combined with old snow melt may have similar wildflower and greens I saw in “Dry Gulch” (which was not so dry) and Herman Gulch. However, the way Grays-Torreys drain, the traditional valley approach to them is dryer than “Dry” Gulch, Herman Gulch, and Watrous Gulch, all of which begin on the other side (North) side of I70 several miles from the Grays-Torreys 4WD road and trail head. You’ll see their relative locations on topo maps. Grays-Torreys are the higher peaks, and so the map quad is named for them. If you go, I look forward to your photos and trip report. It’s great hearing from you. I enjoy visiting your blog a great deal!

  1. Wow, these are great pix, Mike!

    Looks like you have a fantastic blog… a good mix of inspiration, personal training, and information, and good discussions in your comments, I like it very much.

    Thanks for finding me so that I could find you,
    Christy

    • Truth! I really hope it stays that way. Lots of change. I’d love it if Colorado, Denver, and the ski resorts would plan a civil project to put a fast passenger train track along I70 into the mountains to reduce car traffic.
