Twin Peaks is a hike that resembles a climb, a favorite of mine ever since the day we met. They stand like sentinels, watching over Lovely Ouray some 2.5 trail-miles and 2000 vertical feet above town. I can’t look at them without wishing I was up there, gazing down off boot-tips at our canyon-bound hamlet.
Bobbie and I tried to summit Twin Peaks three times this summer, and thrice we were turned away. The first couple times was due to deep snow snow that persisted on north facing slopes, and the third was due to unusual heat and a problematic hernia, my second in as many years.
