I have taken a zero in Leadville, CO., the highest incorporated town in the USA. My right knee has been acting up so I haven't yet summited Mt. Elbert as planned. The hostel is incredible and tonight I cooked some wild sockeye with a garlic soy stir fry. This mmorning I dumped turkey sausage, eggs& cheese in a pan, ate, shared, have some for tomorrow am.It's a real treat to get to cook real food.
Last week i bagged San Luis peak and strung ttogether a few 20+ mile days...just a couple days ago I crossed the 1000 mile mark! Very cool, although it means I have a lot of miles to go.
Storms arise quickly....nearby lightning had me crouching on my foam pad!
Summit snickers! First 14er in a few years.
Still some corniced snow around.
