    Default Yankee Hill Trail Run Report 5-12-18



    Three of us met up for what threatened to be a wet soggy day. Left Longmont at 8 AM in heavy overcast, and extremely heavy mist.rain. It continued this way until up over the hill So. from Rollinsville. By the time I got to Apex road the sky was broken and it appeared that it hadnít rained at all. Apex road to the cemeteries was completely dry. No rain all day, broken sun and clouds. A great day to be out with friends. I didnít do pictures but Paul has a bunch.

    We made it to the top and a bit over toward Alice. Could have easily droppend down to Alice but we decided to reverse our route and head back. Good seeing Paul and his friend along with Matt and his son

    Was skiing up near Loveland pass...sunny blue sky from Idaho springs and up. Glad you had a good day. Looking forward to getting the jeep out next weekend

    Great run, we went across, up and over Yankee Hill, to the overlook for St. Mary's and then did it all again the other way. When I got there the only vehicle in the lot was Tom, and the trail was empty. Not even much shooting today.
    An old friend from FL came along today, it was his first time wheeling in Colorado and he loved it. thanks to Tom, Matt and Sawyer for making his first run a good one! We even picked up another Jeep along the way, two very nice people who stayed with us all the way to the overlook where they went on to Alice. Couldn't have had better weather either.

    looks like a great day to get out. We got rained out from climbing in the canyon and almost made a trip up there, decided to get stuff done around here...feeling pretty dumb for taking cleaning over wheeling. Thanks for the pics, vids and report

    That is the hardest part of the whole trail on that route. There are really no more boulder areas, just smaller rocks.
