Got up at 2:30 a.m. in Janesville, WI. Drove to Chicago, flew to Denver, rented a car and drove to Vail Pass, changed clothes in the car, started to hike at 12 noon and reached summit by 1:45 p.m. Was very thankful about the good weather. In 12 hours, I had gone from my bed in Wisconsin to the top of a mountain in Colorado!!!
