It was one of the first pretty much cloudless days in front range, good day for some outdoor activities in high altitude environments, so we decided to check out hike to the Bear Peak. According to guide books the round trip should be around 8.5 miles and its categorized as difficult hike. It was difficult for sure. Elevation gain of 3000 feet gets you up there high, but it comes with a cost of my legs hurting at the moment and desiring no less but day or two of good rest. I’m not hiking tomorrow. The guide book is btw wrong about the distance. My Band2 clocked almost 11 miles. Man, it was a bear of a hike!
