Trip date: June 02-03, 2018
This is a 2 day trip in the Commanche Peaks Wilderness and Northern Boundary of RMNP. I had planned a loop starting at the Emmaline TH near the CSU Pingree Mountain Campus but I was unsure how much snow to expect so I didn't know how far I'd get. Except for brief deep snow on the initial approach towards the treeline below Fall Mt and in the shaded Mirror Lake cirque, the whole trip was largely snow free.
I also stumbled across the Tom Bennet campground near the TH which I'd heard about before. It would be a great place to car camp with great views a short walk away.

From here I'd loosely follow the trajectory of Mummy Creek and eventually move towards Icefield Pass between Skull Point and Rowe Mt.
This game trail that ran straight through the brush sucked me in like a magnet. It was so worn I had to double check my maps that there wasn't supposed to be an official trail. Unfortunately the quality eventually deteriorated and I had to bail and head for the base of Rowe Mt. as I originally planned.
