Atalaya Mountain

It has been 2 years since summiting Atalaya Mountain. It's not a 14'er but a great run with friendly locals - a lot like Green Mountain in Boulder


We tried to summit in January 2011 but ran into deep snow. The area was closed in July 2011 due to fires (not here specifically)

Will do this again tomorrow and then it's back to Boulder on Tuesday. Had thought about doing Mount Baldy (below) but my buddy Drew is out of town so doing a real mountain (14 mile roundtrip with 3,600' to 12,632') by myself seems like an emergency search and rescue waiting to happen - at least until I improve my outdoor orientation skills
