Fourteeners

Over the past few weekends I’ve been able to hike a few 14ers here in Colorado. Last week I hiked Torreys and Greys via the Kelso Ridge route on Torreys. My brother-in-law Fred went with me, along with two of his friends that live in Ft. Collins. Kelso Ridge has some 3rd class scrambling and some great views, and I was able to take some decent pictures. This weekend I drove up to hike Bierstadt and Evans, linking the two together with the Sawtooth ridge route. Descending Evans down to Guanella pass was interesting because it was a bushwack, but I had the opportunity to take some pictures of the wildflowers and even saw some Rocky Mountain Columbine on the descent.
