Lower Chaos

Posted on 30. Aug, 2007 by in RMNP

Yesterday Ange and I went to Lower Chaos after work. We didn’t leave Boulder until about 4pm. The weather looked threatening but we pushed on, all the way up to Tommy’s Arete. The black clouds were thick and swirling. I had just gotten my stuff out when the sky opened up. The hail was pounding down and a bolt of lightning hit the ridge above the lake. The flash and the thunder were instantaneous, and we knew it was time to get out. We ran back to the car soaking wet and drove back down the hill to Boulder. A little frustrating, but we had a nice session at CATS.

Tuesday we went for a hike in Bear Canyon and saw a very large black bear. He was in a clearing above the talus field and we followed him for about 20 minutes as he walked down the trail all the way to the Bongo Boulder. It seems the bears in the Flatirons are always more active this time of year.
