 Grays/Torreys Combo-Standard   

Came up from Tampa, Fl for Boulder Boulder and maybe a few 14ers. Decided on Grays/Torreys for my first due to the location and trip reports from here. Made it to summer trail head in small 2WD rental car. It was a little bumpy but doable. Stayed in Frisco the night before and started the hike at 7:00am. One of the first views of the 2 peaks. Image As you can see, beautiful sunny day, snow still on upper third of hike. Hiking boots only, no snowshoes. Followed up other tracks in snow to saddle, didn't see the trail until the decent, which I didn't take since I was heading over to Torreys. From atop Grays. Image Torreys from Grays.

First 2 14ers, perfect day for hiking. Hit Grays summit at 10:00, Torreys right before 11:00 and back to car by 1:30. Did Quandary next day, will post quick report on it also.
