Great time and a pretty long day, snow shoe on, snow shoes off. Almost proposed to my exgirlfriend on that summit, WHEW that was close!

This was my first fourteener. I went solo and took 4 hours to summit and 3 hours to get back to the car. I must've done this hike in the late summer during the week because I don't recall seeing a single person and the photos I have show a decent amount of snow on surrounding mountains.

Great views, great weather. Very popular and crowded due to its status as highest in colorado.

2 inches of snow at 10,500' about 6" at the summit. Beautiful views. This could be a very enjoyable winter ski trip. Easy walk for such a big mountain.

Nice day - yes, a hailstorm, a little rain, a little clouds, a little sun, but this is Colroado after all. Easy climb to a crowded top - nice way to end the summer.

A flatlander Hoosier summits his first 14er, accompanied by college-student son. Next to watching his birth, it's the neatest thing I've ever done. This year, it's Mt. Massive. I figure at this rate, I'll do all Colorado's 14ers by age 103.

This is a very easy route and just about anyone in good health can reach the summit.

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!

Pikes Peak is next!

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:

Started at 10,440ft and made the summit in less than three hours. Good hike for all ages.
