Nicely done! Gave me a good laugh. I had to explain the humor to my 12-year old, though.

Any marmots/gators to deal with?

Excellent! You had me laughing from the beginning 1 ft elevation gain! The route photos are as good as Bills, if not better!

I have never voted on a TR before, but will definitely make yours the first and give you the big 5 stars! * * * * *

Wow! That's a great list. I'll be in Colorado next week (Yale, La Plata, Elbert), but I'm going to start hitting these as soon as I come back. (6 of the top 30 are within 45 minutes of my house. Big Cockroach Mound looks like it's only about an hour away too!

Although... after further consideration- there may be a dispute!

Since you used an SUV (summit upclimb vehicle) to further travel up the trailhead, you may be required to return to the scene and walk back a ways to make the climb legit! Take a certified GPS (photograph the reading) and walk back at least 300 ft to verify the excruciating 300 ft horizontal rule :)

That should cover you and give you full credit for the fantastic climb!

Totally cool! My daughter lived in Florida for about a year, but never managed to conquer this awesome summit!
I have been to the mountaintop, and I have seen the force
and the power that animates the universe. That may not
match up with your anthropomorphic or teleological idea of
what "god" is, but it's good enough for me.

Do you need 4wd to get to the TH, or will a high-clearance 2wd suffice?
I have more age than experience, more experience than knowledge, and more knowledge than wisdom.
Yet somehow I usually make it back to the car safely; and oftentimes, so do the people that I'm with.

I can't wait until I have the experience and confidence to go for that summit :)
