Lookout Mountain is on that BLM land and about 3 miles from our property as the crow flys.

The next summit was Fremont Peak near Canon City. This trail system and summit is a best kept secret. The trails are great and you get views of the Royal Gorge along the way without the hassle of the tourist trap just a few miles away. There is also a well developed camp ground and it looked like a lot of people were taking advantage of it.
I forgot my cell phone in the car so no SMS spotting. I had the 2 meter and was able to spot Lynn with ease. I thought I had spotted myself as well but no go.
