I am from very near Sioux City, though, the name comes from graduating as a Fighting Sioux from North Dakota.


Ah. yes, I am from Sioux Falls. Almost went to UND.... moved to Arizona instead. Warmer winters!

Haha. That's a bit of a jump. After enduring weeks of below 0 temps, Arizona sounds nice. I'm from Hartington.

The Rocky Mountain National Park website tires to be more informative about Longs these days. Instead of saying "it is technical (ice axe, crampons, snowshoes, ropes, etc)", they try to describe each part of the trail and show photographs.

They may not update conditions as often as you'd like.
