I forgot about Medano being closed before heading out last Saturday. My dad called the number posted and they said the pass was still closed. So we decided to keep driving to Westcliffe and head up Hermit.
Great day to be out in the mountains! Ended up running it all in 2wd. Aired the tires down to 5-6psi to make the bumps go away. I had never been up past Hermit Lake. I never knew there was another lake. Hermit Peak has some snow on it and the trail takes you up to the snow. We stopped just short of it.
