Description

Neither Brian nor I had been out since we finished the 14ers over a month ago.  We both work in the banking industry, so with Columbus Day off, we went for a quick hike to a Colorado Centennial Peak.  Fletcher Mountain had easy statistics that we felt we could handle despite not being out in quite some time.  Conditions weren't exactly great, but we made the summit and got back to elevation.  There is nothing too exciting to report other than the beer at the Dillon Dam Brewery was nice and cold.  We started at Blue Lakes south of Quandary Peak and hiked up the southeast ridge.
