Route Climbed: Halfmoon trail Date Climbed: 6.30.01
I have very much enjoyed my first Fourteener today. Sort of surprised myself. I had not planned to hike it all the way. Departing early made it all happen. The next time I'll travel even lighter and pack some chocolate and ear covers. Yes, ear cover make sense up high even on a sunny day!

Excellent hike on a clear day following about 3 days of rain. Stayed in Leadville for about 24 hours prior to the hike and had no problems with the altitude. Check out my web page for pictures from the trip:
