What better way to cap off a successful weekend on the bike than hiking the highest peak in Colorado, Mt Elbert: 14,433 ft!
Sonya Looney joined me for this roughly 5.5 hour round trip trek up to 14,433 ft.
Starting at roughly 10,200 ft....would would see all the different 'environments' of the the Colorado high country.
Mt Elbert....turn right.
"Where is the top?"
Typical 14er terrain....chunky.
Still pushing up, with Leadville way in the background.
Getting above 13,000 ft....the point where nothing grows.
The summit....and we shared the summit with about 10-15 other hikers.
Sonya taking in the views...just off the summit.
