A Jaunt up Buffalo Mountain (12,777 ft)

Buffalo Mountain towers about 4000 feet above the valley floor of Summit county (Silverthorne), so it is a rather prominent member of the skyline (despite it being well below the typical 14,000 feet peaks I enjoy hiking). Lonny and I decided it was time to tackle this beast. It was a great hike that presented us with about 3,000 feet of vertical gain in 3 miles. The view from up top was wonderful, and we were joined by a family of goats that didn't seem to mind us too much.
