Ascent Trip Report

My first Colorado hike and peak. Did this with Dad, Uncle Tony, Uncle John, and his friend Ted. Dad and I were visiting from NY for a family get-together. It was our first experience beyond the Adirondacks. We camped overnight about halfway up although the trail can be easily done as a daytrip. We had perfect weather both days and the most awe-inspiring scenery I'd seen up to that point!
