Just got back from epic trip to Colorado. Did 3 day backcountry hiking/camping up and over the Continental Divide that included bear & elk sightings and sunset viewing from top of Continental Divide at 12,000 ft. Then wrapped it up on 4th day with hike/climb up Longs Peak, one of the most technical Colorado 14,000 ft peak treks. That was one of the hardest and scariest things I've ever done in my life and so rewarding at the same time.
Other highlights include hanging out in Lyons and Nederland and sampling the local brew pubs (Dale's Pale Ale anyone?), St Vrains River tubing, and of course...spending the 5 days in the wilderness and bonding with some of my bros/former rugby mates from college.
Much more to come in days/weeks ahead including full report, pictures, and video. I'm still coming up for air (literally, after having spent the last 5 days between 9,000 - 14,000 ft) and catching up on work & family. Here's a couple of pics to whet the appetite.
