Mt. Elbert 14,433

Summited my third 14er today. It was rough. I'd tried Elbert years ago and failed because the trail is long and I was out of shape so we ran out of time. Well, turns out that even though I'm in better shape, it still sucks. But we made it! And it was the first time I hadn't worn my Chacos. I tried my vivos and it was awesome. They're so light and durable. Coming down was a bit rough on my big toes, but I think any shoe or boot would have done the same. God I'm tired.


  1. Congratulations! How long did it take?

  2. 5 hours up and 3.5 down. Long day.
