John and some of the staff had a little adventure last week. Here is his tale of their hike up Hahn’s Peak. Hahn’s Peak is one of the hallmark peaks around our Colorado Lodge and Resort. In the summer we hike it, but if you come for a winter vacation then we put on skis to get up the mountain.
Last Sunday a group of Vista Verde Ranch staff did a full moon hike to summit Hahn’s Peak. The moonlight negated any need for headlamps, yet the multitudes of rock pieces made the last stretch of the ascent fairly difficult. Without shelter of trees at the top, the wind picked up quite a bit so we hid out in the abandoned tower at the summit. Trey brought his ukulele to play a few songs while the group was huddling in the cover of the tower. After quickly posing for a group shot at the top of the mountain everyone headed back down. The staff members from left to right in the group picture: John Hill (Pool Manager), Kathy (Server), Jason (Ranch Hand), Jess (Wrangler), Trey (Fly Fishing Guide), Jami (Housekeeper).
