|Laura, Michelle and me at the top of Mt. Evans, 14258 feet above sea level|
My daughter Laura and I set off Sunday morning at 5:45 with Michelle(Laura's friend from high school) and headed to Guanella Pass to begin our ascent and for me to discover the reason why people climb Fourteener's.
Michelle and Laura gave me their top reasons.
1. Because it is so pretty.
2. You get to see Mountain Goats!
Through the marsh and about to start climbing in earnest.
Early on in the ascent, Michelle proclaimed this will be an "epic fourteener adventure."
The parking lot from where we started is in the top left hand corner of the picture.
What do you mean we have to cross a stream?
We leap frogged back and forth with this group of fellow climbers. The person in the lower left hand corner took our picture at the top of Mt. Evans with his camera and e-mailed us the photos!
|Regrouping after ascending through the Rocks|
We made it!
Laura shows off her scrapes!
Michelle shows off her "white socks"
I want to send out some extra light and love to Michelle.
