Story

Wanted to get some good climbing in today somewhere I haven't gone up before and got some good elevation and fun views.  Always wish the trails and roads could keep going, but JeffCo Open Space is working on opening the Coal Creek Study Area up to visitors eventually... onwards!
Really nice sunny day after some heavy snow.
Nice wide shoulder and not too many cars next to Leyden Open Space
Turn onto 93 and climb!
Going up after turning on 72
Start of a big climb going into Blue Mountain Estates
Pretty snow-covered ridge
Surprise gravel towards the top
Getting some views of the plains
Snow starting to get thicker
Was definitely on and off the bike hiking/running a couple of deep sections
Snowy, sunny + warm
Back to the plains
