 It's worth the trip  

West Spanish Peak
375' below awesome
Easiest possible way from Cordova Pass

Scott and I had seen this mountain so many times on our way across the state to hike 14ers. After finishing on Capitol the previous month, we decided to get one last high summit in before snow became a common sight. West Spanish Peak is the Easternmost 13er / 4,000m peak in the US and is the Las Animas County highpoint.

They are now engaged

An inspiring sight!

This was the first trip we did where a 14er was not the objective. We took our time, enjoyed the scenery, and had a blast. It wasn't particularly hard, although the trail isn't great above treeline. The views are spectacular and this trip is well worth your time, check it out!
