Mt. Elbert, Colorado
September, 1998
I was in Colorado for a bit of summer peak bagging -- here are a few pictures from the "highpoint" of that trip:

Beautiful mornings like this are why I love mountaineering.  That's Charlotte (my partner for this climb) coming up the trail from our camp above Black Cloud Creek on Mt Elbert's South side.

On the Summit with the South Summit ridge in the background.  Our route brought us over that ridge from the south near the farthest left snowfield.  The South Summit is 14,134 Ft., so I guess we did two fourteeners in one day!
