Views from Angler Mt. Trail, Summit County Colorado

Hiked mid-day today, 2 Oct. 2012.  The fun never stops.  Enjoying that autumn weather while it lasts.  It won’t be long.  This trail is above Silverthorne in the north part of the county, east of Highway 9 affording incredible views to the west.

The views never stop. L-R Buffalo Mt., Red Peak, and unnamed 13,333′?
