14,433′

26 Jul

4.5 miles up, 4.5 miles down. That’s all it takes to scale Colorado’s highest peak. Well, that, a couple of liters of water each, a large bag of trail mix, two Chocolate Chip Clif Bars per person, one Oatmeal Raisin Clif Bar for the dogs to split, two bags Teriyaki jerky, and a couple of Gatorades to share. A raincoat with a hood and a layer of fleece are also good to have around–it’s windy as sin up there. Beautiful views from the top and a lovely hike up through a pine forest. We even beat the rain by about an hour!

One thing to keep in mind when you’re headed home. No matter how hungry you are DO NOT STOP at the Silver Dollar Saloon. You will regret it.Image
