Yes, but I told my wife I'd be skiing, so please don't tell her I'm on a 14er again.

Everyone was telling me about the facebook 14ers group, but I seem completely incapable of finding it. Can someone post or send me a link to it please?

Oh, and in mtnklutz's picture, I'm in the front row in the dark blue coat.

Thanks!

Great meeting you all out there. Was a fantastic day! Cookies and KitKat post hike, thanks!

And to those Boulderites who helped me with a hand warmer, thanks a LOT!

It was great meeting everyone. Even though there were different paces we found that worked for getting to visit with a lot of people on the way up and down. Thanks to Dancesatmoonrise for organizing and thanks to Terry for waiting at the trailhead to see everybody made it down alright. (We brought up the rear!)

Special thanks to Brian for waiting on the summit long enough for me to take this picture!

Sister Dorthe has been posting them on Facebook all day!!!!!
The wind did stop as I reached the top - coincidence?! :wink:
It was great seeing hiker friends again and meeting new hikers.
Terry thanks for keeping an eye out for the slow poke.

Good time getting out with everyone! Too bad the wind impeded the summit party. The first Snowblade descent of Quandary might still be up for the taking. Truth to be told I couldn't turn the things well enough in my mountaineering boots to safely ride the east face and took them off a couple hundred feet from the summit.

Two faces are hidden behind Kylie's victorious right arm and there's another hood in there missing a face. But I'm counting it.
