This weekend I invited myself on a scout trip with Todd and some of the Young Men in our ward. They had been planning to hike a 14er all summer and I figured I would tag along since I've lived in Colorado basically all of my life and I have yet to hike one! What a cool experience! We left the boys with Brent, Ann and Elaina on Friday night and drove up to the trail head just a little west of Denver. We slept under the stars and even though it was only 35 degrees, I was nice and toasty thanks to these bad boys. After years of FREEZING I took the plunge and made the investment. SO worth it! Anyway, we woke up at 5:00 and headed out. The weather was beautiful and even though I ended up hiking by myself nearly all day (Todd had to stay with the boys and try to convince them to keep going) I had a great time.
Here is a picture of the two peaks at about 6 a.m
Todd and I met up on the summit of Grays peak. Check out the views!
