At home at the top of the world...

Last weekend we climbed Grey's Peak, an easy local 14er.

It was a really slow, but great hike. Round trip it took all 13 of us six hours to hike up and back. We started the hike at 11,000 feet, which was all good and well but by 13,400 feet I had to stop about every ten steps to catch my breath.

Despite that the hike was not technical at all.

I definitely recommend this hike, after some acclimatization, to anyone who is in good shape and doesn't mind spending a full day on 7.5 miles. 

As usual, Pomplemousse came along!
