Ascent Trip Report

Alright, so we are 23 weeks into 2013 and I was 15 peaks off pace of my goal of averaging 1 mountain per week. I blame getting sick of snow, home improvement projects, and general laziness. But the dog and I were back on the trails today. I felt like getting back up to the Heart Lake area, so we went up in the morning to climb Mt. Jo. Took the long trail up (1.3 miles) and it was pretty nice. My only complaint was the large group (10+) with 2 little barking yorkies that were not on leashes and got right to Jax's face. Luckily he's a friendly dog and still didn't back down despite their snarling and the people yelling in French. God forbid the people stop yelling and actually grab their dogs, what a novel idea. Anyways, I had the summit to myself and took the short trail back down.
