Ascent Trip Report

We took Three Poles to Mushroom Rock trail. It looked like a forest fire was starting in the valley to the west of Sopris. On the way back we ended up on the farther east trail (Blue Ribbon?) again on accident. It was around 90F but tolerable. We would have hiked earlier with my parents, but Gary the Subaru blew a fuse and caused an hour and a half of fussing while the windows were stuck down.
