Longs Peak 7-31-04

Vijay and I headed for Longs Peak at 2 am on a Friday night, hiked from 3:00 to 16:00 and returned home the next day at 18:00.  We walked the entire time only taking a few 20 minute breaks.   Here are some shots of the trip:





Nothing like an alpine start with headlamps



Having a snack in the Boulder Field


The view from inside the hut at the "Keyhole"


Some top-out shots.  We got to 13,749 at the top of the a gulley and I made an executive decision to turn around.

The end of the trail - 13 hrs and many steps later.
