Ascent Trip Report

Flew into Denver the night before to start adjusting to the altitude. Lucky we were able to drive most of the way so we could get there and back down to lower elevation quickly. We passed some snow on the ground, but navigated past it without much trouble. Got lucky and didn't need oxygen.

State highpoint number 4 for me and number 1 for Carmela. We were also able to dodge the buffalo, and a bumble bee.

Met a Phil from Chicago - a "highpointer", but not a peakbagger. So I told him about this website. He says he's done all the eastern highpoints, but now has the real mountains to contend with!
