Ascent Trip Report

Moved back to Colorado in 1993 after 20+ years in Texas. Ron got me back into mountain climbing with a trip up to Longs Peak with his family. I counted about 400 hikers on the mountain that day. We had beautiful weather and made the summit in good time. Gloria only made it up to about the hourglass, but waited for us to summit and come back. I'm sorry she didn't make it all the say. This was a satisfying summit for me since we failed to make the Longs Peak summit back twenty-three years ago.
