Price Canyon Recreation Area to Ford Ridge
A 7.14-mile round-trip hike from Price Canyon Recreation Area to peak 9,519' on Ford Ridge, with a 1,700' elevation difference between the TH and the peak (2,300' total gain/loss due to ups and downs). Down low there were a lot of ponderosa pines and mountain mahogany, giving way to bristlecone pines and quaking aspen as the trail climbs. I saw deer, rabbits, horned lizards, but thankfully no bears (and only one bear track).
