 Solo night hike up Mt. Elbert   

I hiked Mt. Elbert's east ridge friday night / saturday morning in attempt to catch a sunrise from the summit and to get some pictures of the total lunar eclipse.

Things never totally go as planned though. This is my first trip report, so go easy on me.

I wrote my trip report on my blog that I share with my family back east.
