Billy atop Mt. Lincoln
Time away from work can only mean one thing, play time! Yesterday at 4:30am I found myself in a barrowed 4x4 (thanks Blackie) on the way to pick up Kelli E to hopefully bag lots of 14er’s...by arriving at Kite Lake (12,000’) @ 6:00am along with the mind set of “peak baging” Mt. Democrat, Mt. Cameron, Mt. Lincoln, and Mt. Bross. Yes, it sounds like a lot of hiking but why not, right?
The day was awesome! Early morning hiking (early morning, shoot crack of dawn is more like it), good company, laughing at each other about tripping over rocks while suffering from hypoxia, and doing once again what most people in other states cant! Did I mention how much I love Colorado?
I could never comprehend how cool it was to look down on all the valleys and see eye-to-eye with the other 14er’s in the area, until standing on one of those monster. It was a moment every outdoor loving person with applicable fitness should at least enjoy once in there lifetime. Well for me, I’m hooked! After yesterday I graduated into double digits of 14er’s hiked, yes that now 10 bagged with 43 more to go in Colorado alone.
