    I thought I would share some photos from an amazing hike I took with a friend yesterday. We hiked up Quandary Peak near Breckenridge, Colorado. The 13th Tallest Mountain in CO. 14,265 feet.

    For those of you seeking to climb a fourteener, this is a great one to start with. Granted its a long hike, so bring food, extra clothes lots of water and start very early in the morning. Took us almost 9 hours round trip.

    Nice pictures. I always found it kinda depressing to walk back down though. I'd always look back and go "Man...I was all the way up there."

    LOL I know what you mean. I actually was walking back down and thinking "shit, I have to go back to work in 2 days."


    I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful state, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
