Blodgett Peak

Quick hike with friend and family down at the north end of Colorado Springs (Blodgett Peak). Didn't finish the hike, just maybe the first half or third (the trail gets pretty bad as you go up, steep with loose gravel -- just the sort of thing to take out a certain somebody's knees -- so I decided that it was better not to push it too much). So maybe 1,000-1,500 feet out of a possible 3,000, at maybe 7,000 or 8,000 feet of altitude, all very approximate.

Not much to say about the hike itself, but I did take pictures (shocking, I know -- click through for all of them):
