 Pikes Peak   

Did the Crags Route June 18, 2005.

Beautiful day. We found a little spot by the river on the trailhead and camped the night before the hike. Up around 5am and on the route at 6am. Very little snow and easily avoidable on the route. The hike itself was great, the summit was a circus. Not really the best reward for a long hike, but then again, the hike itself is a reward. Were in good shape but took our time since it was a great day out. Round trip was about 9 hrs.

Pictures from the hike can be seen (I know, cutesy pics included since I was with the g/f):

A few other pics from mostly 14ers over the past year can be seen here if interested:
