Impressions of my Estes Cone activation in N Colorado for Summits On The Air (SOTA).
It's NA SOTA Day! Since I just returned from an overseas trip the day before, I was looking for an activation which does not need a lot of planning. So I went out to activate Estes Cone (WØ/FR-Ø39) which is located at the border of Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) and Roosevelt National Forest, just a few short miles south from Estes Park. The trail-head is shared with the Longs Peak trail-head. Due to the popularity of Longs Peak (WØ/FR-11Ø -- 14259 ft / 4346 m) in summer, the parking lot fills up (very) quickly in the morning. The weather forecast was calling for a sunny day. The freezing conditions at the TH combined with the altitude and winds were an indicator for a chilly activation.
