Little Scraggy Peak and Mount Peck

Little Scraggy Peak

Lynn and I did little Scraggy Peak a while ago. It was a perfect day. Little Scraggy is near Deckers Colorado.

Mount Peck

Mount Peck is near Monarch Ridge South. For the most part you hike the CDT until you come to a clear area where you start to go up. It is a very nice hike however the wind was really blowing. This dropped the temperature a lot but still a great day to be on a summit.

Great views

We were unable to stay very long due to unexpected events but we did enjoy our time on this hike.

Both these hikes were last minute. I have been very busy at work but hope it starts to slow down soon. Winter will soon be here and Lynn is trying to reach her goal of 900 points for this year. I am not sure we can do that but she will be very close.
