Description is accurate except for the final sentences that talk about the glacier and 1 or 2 days to base camp. You drive to the trailhead and hike from there. Its about 3 to 4 hour hike to summit and return in about 2 to 3 hours. There can be snow and ice in winter and early spring, but this would not be considered a glacier.
I seriously doubt that you can see to Kansas (to the east) since it is at least 250 miles and the San Juans and Sangre de Cristo ranges would block any view to Kansas.
