Colorado Trip - Report 3 - DNS = Did Not Summit

Two hours into my hike I started asking myself did I really want to push forward 45-60 more minutes, when I was meeting friends later that afternoon? When I started asking myself that, I answered my own question. I turned around after 2 hours, still happy with the climb and with the very limited if any effects of being at 11,500 to 13,700 or so feet above sea level. Guanella Pass is as mind-numbingly beautiful as ever (more pictures), I got down to the parking lot before the weather got dicey, and the Burgers at My Brother's Bar are as great as ever. I took part in the new DC rage of taking pictures of burgers before eating them, and I will add that to the picture library.

Tomorrow's a light hike before meeting up with people in the city. Should be fun.

Oh goof, meeting up with old friends should definitely trump the hike - that summit will be there next time! Can't wait to see your buger pics, he he he.

Meeting friends did come first. And I hope to have the pictures developed by the end of the week.

The burger pics, provided they came out okay, will be up in the next day or two. I finally got to Target to pick my pictures up, as soon as my Flickr Pro account order gets processed, I will upload and label the pictures. The hike pictures will go up too!
