Wanted some Bergen to celebrate the 4th of July!

We enjoyed the fireworks show in Downtown Denver which occurred on 3 July 2018 for some reason. We stayed up late so we decided to go with the easier hike that was close to downtown Denver. We started relatively early and got to the empty trailhead. It was another beautiful day with a cool breeze. The trail was a lot easier compared to the Manitou Incline that we did the day before. We reached the summit relatively quickly and located the Bergen Peak sign thanks to previous members write-ups. Also wanted to give a special thanks to Chelsey for her help. Thanks again! We enjoyed the summit since it was empty at the time. On the way down is another story. It was crowded with mountain bikers, hikers, and the four legged hikers as well. 🙂 We were glad that we got the early start. It started to sprinkle on the way down but not enough to dampen our excitement on completing our 2nd peak of the six pack of peaks. Onto the third peak…..
