Hiking Handies in the Snow

With new snow blanketing the mountains, my sister and I jumped in the jeep and headed toward our favorite fourteener, Handies Peak.  We didn't make the summit, but the combination of fall colors, new snow, and bluebird skies was absolutely breathtaking.

Making our way up Cinnamon Pass to American Basin and the Handies Peak trailhead

Made it to American Basin, now time to start hiking

The top of Handies will have to wait for another day

Post-holing to Sloan Lake: exhausting but beautiful
