What a beautiful day today! We started from the Maple Springs road at Main Divide and it was REALLY windy–every time we were on the east side it got very gusty, but I didn't mind because it blew the bugs away. (A couple weeks ago there were lots of bugs going up to Bedford Peak.) This is a pretty easy hike – wide truck road, nothing too steep so we added Modjeska Peak, which I highly recommend. A few jeeps passed us driving up to the peak and at the trailhead/parking some trucks were playing in the offroad area. Most were cool but one truck stepped on the gas by us kicking up dust and rocks… not cool, dude. Other than that I think we saw 2 other hikers in total on the trails. Great views, great day.
