Peak Bagging

Mountain Summits 2013
View from Grays Peak

I started 2013 in Estes Park, Colorado, working in the Rocky Mountain National Park greenhouse. It was a great and rewarding job and allowed me the opportunity to explore the mountains. I did a few winter runs and hikes in the mountains but really ramped up the summit hunting in the summer. I managed to hike Longs a couple of times, knock out some 14er groups and “Kill” the Mummy Range. Having the start of the Front Range in my backyard I would be remised to not spend every free moment wandering around in it. To highlight my adventures quantifiably I created a comprehensive list of all my summits from January to August this year.
