|View from Panorama Point|
|Looking Northeast to Starr Peak from Gap Road|
|Looking Southwest from Panorama Point toward Mount Evans|
|Panorama Point views go on forever|
|Thorodin Mountain just north of Gap Road|
|Pinnacle above the Harmsen Ranch|
East along Gap Road on the right was Aspen Meadow Campground with 2 loops for tents, pit toilets and lots of aspen trees. It backs up to a meadow and seems very peaceful, especially the last 2 sites. There is a trailhead here for the 3 mile Snowshoe Hare Trail.
|Along the Buffalo Trail next to Nott Creek|
|Once someones home, now an unmarked Historical Structure|
|Looking back uphill on the Buffalo Trail|
|Our next trail from the Reverend's Ridge Campground, Raccoon|
|Nicely marked, moderate Raccoon hiking trail to Panorama Point|
|More Raccoon Trail on the return trip|
|Interesting tree cut, where 2 small trees grew together, creating a third set of tree rings|
Alternately, you could follow Gap Road and Twin Spruce Road east to Coal Creek Canyon road where there are stores and coffee.
Our return trip was Gap Road west to go south on CO-119 through Blackhawk. Outside of Blackhawk we took US-6 to the right through Clear Creek Canyon and Johnson Gulch back to I-70, then followed the Interstate back east to Denver, then south on CO-470 and south on US-85 to Castle Rock. What a great day trip!
