The Indian Peaks Wilderness are the mountains I've always considered to be in my backyard. With roughly an hour's drive, I am at a trailhead that brings me to the Continental Divide. Glacier can be seen, wildflowers are blooming, and the mountains always impress.
I considers these my home mountains and always look forward to spending time in them.
D-low and I had planned a quick backpacking weekend. Nothing too strenuous (about 12 MPD), not too far of a drive and would offer great scenery. The Devil's Thumb loop came to mind.
