    Here is a good quick overview video of that hike. Just an amazing experience.

    Another good Colorado trip in the books. This year I didn't spend as much time and trip was more for my daughter and girlfriends daughter, but still added 5 14'ers to my list, now up to 8!

    Did Pike's Peak from Crags Campground, 15.09 miles and 4,337' climbing. I did it solo and although only 36 hours acclimation, my legs were fresh and I hit it hard. Completed in 7 hours 59 minutes.

    I guided my girlfriend to her first 14'er and 3 more, the "relatively" easy Decalibron loop summiting Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross in one 7.5 mile loop. She did great for her first one, especially as a flatlander who hasn't trained lately. We took it really slow, she hasn't developed quick mountain feet yet, but that's OK at least no twisted ankles!

    Not exactly epic, but hiked the Grandfather Mountain trail in NC from the swinging bridge to Calloway Peak and back in cold stormy weather a few years ago with my brother. We were the only people on the mountain besides the staff. It's rare to be able to do that hike without the crowds and the winds and rain make for an exhilarating experience.

    Aside from that, Angels Landing, the Virgin River Narrows hike, and Grinnell Glacier are some of my more memorable hikes.

    I've got my 2021 plans. Will be based out of Durango. So looking at notching 14'ers Handies, Sneffels, Red Cloud, and Sunshine.
