Independence Day weekend found me in Grand Junction, Colorado, visiting my oldest daughter. On the morning of the Fourth of July I decided to make a quick hike up to Liberty Cap. The ladder was not there on the summit cap, so summiting requires you to use the cut-out foot holds and a couple of pieces of rebar sticking out of the round Liberty Cap mound. Getting up is easy; however, down-climbing is a bit more challenging. Anyway, my wife and I spent the weekend with my daughter and also ventured to Marble, Colorado, and the Crystal Mill, which my wife checked off her bucket list.
