RMNP & Sawatch Photos

I got an internship in Boulder during the summer of 2005, and in addition to camping, rock-climbing, and skydiving, I was also able to go on quite a few hikes. Throughout the summer I stuck to a rigid schedule of running at least two miles and weightlifting for half an hour each day with the intent to get in better shape for my last year of intramural basketball, and this opened the door for me to try more strenuous hikes that I wouldn't have attempted otherwise due to my previous lack of conditioning. After getting to the summit of a few 14ers I couldn't believe what I'd been missing, and ever since then I've been hooked on hiking and climbing mountains.

I put together a slideshow of my pictures here.
