 Second and 1st 14er.  

Sunday we decided to hike Mt Bierstadt wit the wife, sister in law and her boyfriend. We left home around 5:30am and arrived at the TH at 7:00am. It was my second 14 1st time for everyone else. The weather was great. Not a single cloud in the sky. We parked the Xterra and saw the challange to come.

We didnt expect to see so much people up there. Maybe because it was a Sunday. TONS OF PEOPLE..

This pic was taken when we got back to the TH since the sun was shining right in front of us when we got there.

At the begining of the trail you find some wetland so they built these little passages.

Still some snow up there

The whole team


Had a sandwich, spent around 30 min at the summit

Sled down the snow Ghetto style (with our rain poncho‘s hehehe)

Crazy how deep that thing was.

At the end it took us 4 hrs to get up and 2 to get back to the TH (need to train more)
