L-man and I had an adventure this last weekend.
Three months ago, we started planning a trip to climb a fourteener, Mt. of the Holy Cross. Aptly named because of a couloir on one side of the mountain that, when filled with snow, is in the shape of a cross.
We backpacked in and stayed two nights in our two man bivy:
taking time to view a mushroom village:
then climbed to new heights:
I've posted more photos with commentary here, if you care to read more about our adventure! For me, it was epic, and very rewarding.
