I parked by the snowmobile shop in Garfield and hiked the road up to the Boss Lake trail (Colorado Trail). The weather was perfect until I reached the divide where clouds from the west were racing over the ridges and moistening the rock. I summited Bald and walked over to Clover and Vulcan, going in & out of fog the entire way. I decided not to proceed up Monumental Peak as the rock was wet on the left and I wasn't prepared for a steep snow climb on the right. I returned the way I came, taking several long breaks to take in the views!
