Colorado Summer time....

People think that you move to Colorado because of the Rocky Mountains at your door.  While I'm not discounting the never ending snow sports that I have been getting back into over the past few winters, I can honestly say that I think the summers are almost that much nicer.

This summer Cat and I have been getting ready for our hike up Mount Kilimanjaro this coming winter, Africa's highest peak.  Standing at more than 19,000 feet, it's going to be a fun, 8 day experience had with nearly a dozen very dear friends.  I can honestly say that I can't wait.  Attempting to prepare for that hike, we've done 2, 14ers (Torrey's Peak and Quandry Peak) as well as a few hikes including Mallory Cave, Missouri Lakes Trail, Gregory Canyon and Pitkin Lake Trail to name a few.  (If you click the links, it will take you to a map of our actual hike, click on the detail to see a graph of the elevation gain over time)

Here are some select shots of our hikes.  To see them all, click the link at the end of this post.
