Ascent Trip Report

Began the night before at the Manitou Springs parking area for the Barr Trail. Made it to Barr Camp where I had a reservation for the cabin (along with a bunch of other folks). Slept in the loft area but was up well before dawn and as far as I know was the first one away from the cabin that morning. The late night sky was beautiful and I saw several meteors, then the dawn was spectacular. Made to the summit in decent time and enjoyed my donut. A nice family offered me a ride back to Manitou Springs, which I accepted.
