Mt. Massive Is Massive!

On Monday I summited Mt. Elbert solo, Colorado's highest peak at 14,440 ft. Less than a week later, I returned with Aaron to tackle Elbert's next door neighbor, Mt. Massive, Colorado's second highest peak at 14,421 ft. ⭐️Check out my previous blog post about my Mt. Elbert adventure. As I mentioned in my previous post,... Continue Reading →

Grays & Torreys (not quite)

My morning alarm blared "Buttons" by The Weeks at exactly 3:45am this morning. It's Grays and Torreys 14er day with Aaron! It would be my 6th and 7th Colorado summits over 14,000 feet and Aaron's 3,600th. Just kidding, but he has hiked more than he can count both recreationally and as a member of Alpine...
