I Climbed a Mountain [pics]

I love looking at photos, and I thought some of you guys might too. So, I would like to share with you photos from my latest hiking trip.

Over the weekend, I climbed Long's Peak with a friend of mine. Long's Peak is a mountain on the Continental Divide, in the Front Range. It is 14,255 feet tall, and the elevation gain from the beginning of the hike, to the peak, is almost 1 mile (5,100'). It is a class 3 hike, and 14 miles round-trip. Use the following link to see the photos:

(there are also some photos in a different album from another 14er I climbed)

I climbed another mountain over the weekend: Crestone Needle. It is located on the Sangre de Cristo mountain range, in the San Isabel National Forest. Check out the photos:

Crestone Needle sits on the Sangre de Cristo mountain range and is 14,197 feet high. The standard route is a class 3, and the elevation gain and distance vary depending on where you begin hiking.

There is 2WD access to the mountain, however, there is a 5 mile jeep trail that begins where that ends. The jeep trail is supposedly one of the roughest in the state of Colorado, and it gets a little worse every year. There are big rocks, trees, pockets, mud and 3 creeks to cross. It took us almost 2 hours to drive up it, and it steadily gets worse all the way up. From the end of the jeep trail, the total elevation gain to the peak is about 3,300 feet, and the distance is about 9 miles round-trip.
