Ascent Trip Report

7-2-11 : beautiful day. Started at 550a. Good pace, must be acclimating to CO altitude. No altitude sickness this time. Summited Gray's at around 830a. Then took saddle trail to Torrey's Peak. Then took connector trail and glisaded about 500 feet down the bowl ... awesome experience riding my own mini-avalance!! I love Colorado. This is the place God must be if he's here.
