Thursday night last week, out of now where, I decided to give my self an hour to pack my gear and head to the Sawatch Range around 6pm. I didn’t really have any set plans besides hiking something. I Checked 14ers.com for route and camping info and that was as far as I planned in advance and left town. I stopped by my friend Ali house in Dillon on the way up and secured my route for Huron peak. Leaving Dillon I got to my campsite around 11:30pm that night and enjoyed the stars before getting some rest.
Yesterday was opening day at Arapahoe Basin here in Colorado! If you didn’t make it up, you missed out! Hour long line, Crazy Costumes, Lots of beer and food, oh and did i mention its October 13th!?
This past weekend I hiked 14er, Mt. Sherman (14,036ft). Which is Supposed to be one of the easiest 14er in Colorado… until you are battling 60+ mph winds, hiking in ski boots with camera gear, skis, and supplies strapped to your back!
Early this morning my alarm went off around 3:30 am, bags packed ready to go I left to pick up Quinn and to make our way to Mt Democrat. After two long hours driving in the dark we finally made it to our destination. We set up the trail at 6:30 am and got the hearts pumping, In a little under six hours we had summit-ed our third 14er for the day, 10 minutes past noon.
After a great night partying with the Mile High Sound Movement, i made my way up to the mountains to celebrate our good friends James birthday. That which intailed 15 wookie, weirdos getting down in the woods for 4 days… yes you read that correctly. It was an amazing night with great friends from all around.
