Visit the town's icon mountain - Horsetooth Mountain. Walk up to the base of the "left tooth" by the "back" trail.

Partway up the tail - looking southwest towards Longs Peak, 30 miles away.

Horsetooth Road shooting to the east. Heading west on Horsetooth you can see straight through the gaps between the mountain's "teeth".

The green dot (right-center) is home. This peak is visible from my garage door.

A walk to the top of the mountain seems easy enough. I saw those people pass by me not much earlier. No ropes or technical gear needed. Another trip up I'll visit the top.
