Quandary Peak is one of the better known and oft-traveled mountains in Colorado. In fact, we got the last spot in the lower parking lot right after turning onto 850. Despite the presence of early crowds on the trail, the hike up Quandary was a lot of fun. I hadn’t climbed Quandary in quite a few years, so I forgot how awesome it was! Also, this was Elizabeth’s first 14ers, which made the day very special and a lot of fun!
Route finding up Quandary’s East ridge is very straightforward, so let’s jump to some of my favorite summit shots!
GOAT BONUS: We saw a large group of mountain goats in the Blue Lakes parking lot up on the ridge, so we decided to go Goat Hunting after our hike. We were lucky to track down four goats!
