Yale 444, did I say that the weather was perfect?! Off we headed somewhat early in the morning to tag our 5th 14er, the dessert run after Belford, Oxford, Missouri & Huron a couple days earlier. We were feeling suprisingly good and started pushing the pace right out the gate.
Kristi got her payback for all her training when we passed a young lady & she asked if we were "marathoners", as she could truly state "yes" after Eugene in March. Going up the west flank we could see droves of summiters ahead of us, providing inspiration to power ahead. Tally for the climb, passed 30+, passed not.
It was a party at the top with warm temps & a large crowd. Mr. YALE himself held court with the massses after topping out on Yale for the second time in a week. 11 years old and one fast little dude!
Then it was down to Beuna Vista for a group photo with K and our support team, who cruised up to Hartenstein Lake for photo ops.
Round trip, car-to-car, 4:44.
