Peak Bagging (2013 Edition)

Peak Bagging (2013 Edition)
South 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 base of the Front Range in my backyard I would be foolish to not spend every free moment wandering around in the mountains. To quantify my adventures, I created a comprehensive list of all my summits from January to August this year.

31 Unique peaks and a total of 45 summits for 2013

8 14ers; adding to my 2 from 2012 = 10 down 44 to go

14 mountains over 1300 feet
