Yale 444, did I say that the weather was perfect?! Off we headed somewhat early in the morning to tag our 5th 14er, the dessert run after Belford, Oxford, Missouri & Huron a couple days earlier. We were feeling suprisingly good and started pushing the pace right out the gate.Image
Kristi got her payback for all her training when we passed a young lady & she asked if we were "marathoners", as she could truly state "yes" after Eugene in March. Going up the west flank we could see droves of summiters ahead of us, providing inspiration to power ahead. Tally for the climb, passed 30+, passed not. Image
It was a party at the top with warm temps & a large crowd. ImageMr. YALE himself held court with the massses after topping out on Yale for the second time in a week. 11 years old and one fast little dude!
Then it was down to Beuna Vista for a group photo with K and our support team, who cruised up to Hartenstein Lake for photo ops.Image
Round trip, car-to-car, 4:44.

Thanks for the great report Dad! Yale was a blast - I felt like I finally got how to handle those 14ers . For the record, when you say that seeing people up ahead gave you inspiration to power on, what you really mean is that it made the speed come out, and there was no holding you back . Now, which one‘s should we do next year?
