 Grays & Torreys  

It was our first 14teener and it was perfect on the trail by 9:00 and off the second peak at 1:00 just beat the lightning it was sprinkling by the time we reached the trail head. Beautiful day lots of wildlife Mountain Sheep on the way up Mountain goat posed with my daughter he stayed close to the trail till someones dog off leash chased him away to bad for other hikers. Just a wonderful first hike. Lots of Marmots on the trail as well as chipmunks and birds galore. What a wonderful father and daughter outing. Can‘t wait till she comes back next summer for another 14teener!!!
