Quandary Peak, Video Trail of the Trail
Quandary Peak is just up the pass from Breckenridge, Colorado. One item to understand about hiking 14er’s is that they are straight up and not easy. Have protein bars and lots of water. I took a gallon with me on this trip and gave over a half a gallon away to folks who didn’t bring enough water with them, 12oz of water is not enough people. I was very parched by the time I got down. I ran into a search and rescue person on the trail on my way down. He was on his way up to rescue someone who didn’t have a enough water or food and bonked out. As he stated the Darwin effect, how nature weeds out the population that doesn’t think be for taking action. Hiking is serious outdoor activity, so please take it that way.
Now back to the trail. I give this hike a 5 star rating. The views are breath taking and the hike is a great work out. Once at the peak, sat and eat a sandwich, while taking in the view before heading back down. The hike down in some ways was more beautiful than going up. If you have never done a 14er before, I recommend this one as a great place to start.
Colorado Living is Attitude,
Tough enough to climb 50 plus 14er’s, backpack the 500 plus miles of the Colorado Trail or any other wilderness area, wading a river to gently placing a fly in front of a rising trout.
