Know Before You Go
Some mountains, some morning light.
Some more mountains. Classic case of "photo doesn't do it justice." At all.
From whence we came.
Chihuahua Lake and Grizzly Peak (13,427') from the shoulder of Torreys.
The view north from along the ridge. The only peak I know the name of is the pointy one just right of center, Mt. Sniktau.
Kari checks out the view of Grizzly.
Gray's Peak (14,270'), a neighboring 14er. Look closely, you can see roughly one million people on the summit.
The sheep go marching one by one, hurrah! Hurrah!
They practically needed to have police officers directing traffic on the standard route up Torreys.
We had seen exactly three other people up to this point.
Looking down into Ruby Gulch (?) from near the summit.
Kari and I on the summit. I look like a dumbass, as usual.
The mob scene on the summit. I bet I could make way more money running a hot dog stand on the summit than I am as a mechanical engineer.
I apologize for the fact that my camera sucks and the lens cap didn't open all the way. I had to throw out half the photos I took because of it.
Looking down into Stevens Gulch (the standard way to climb Grays and Torreys).
Chihuahua Lake was very photogenic.
Seriously, you can't take a bad picture of this lake. Well, I sure I could, but I'd actually have to work at it, instead of allowing my typical shoddy photography skills to do it for me.
