 Spring to Winter back to Spring  

After getting snowed out on several previous attempts to summit America's Mountain, we finally had a window of opportunity with the warming temps and slowly departing snow. Leaving Denver late Friday evening, we set up camp just as the sun was setting a little ways above the Crags Trailhead.

We awoke the next morning at 4 a.m., as always, reminding myself that I needed a hobby that does not involve waking up before the sunrise. About an hour later, we were packed and on the trail at 5:15 a.m., just as the sun was beginning to peek over the mountains.
