Gray’s Peak 14,270′ 9/23/2012

Posted: September 25, 2012 in Colorado, Hiking

 

So we finally knocked out our first 14er together! We hit Gray’s Peak bright and early. We headed out of Denver at 4:30am and we were on the trail at 5:45am. Even that early we were not alone, there were about 10 others getting an early start.  The hike itself wasn’t too bad, the problem was that we were a little out of shape and maybe a 14er wasn’t the best idea. Oh well we kicked it’s ass anyway! The first 1.5 miles were pretty easy, the Last 2 were grueling! Awesome hike, check out the resources for more info or comment with any questions or comments.
