Getting tuned up for snow season.
Years ago I hiked up Mount Lady Washington (in RMNP) in the winter. The ranger in the Longs Peak Ranger Station was this dude Walter Tishma. He was AWESOME! Usually park rangers try to talk you out of adventures, not so with Walter. He was all in with route info and gear ideas. He climbed Longs for his 100th time on his 72nd birthday.
