Two 14ers Down, 52 To Go

Last week, a fellow JAG and I nabbed two 14ers in the Front Range, Grays and Torreys Peaks. It was a ton of fun, especially glissading 2,000 feet in 60 seconds. We left here at 4:30, hit the trailhead by 7:30, and were back to the car by 2:00. Both peaks are close to each other, so its pretty easy to do both in a day. The weather held out for us, and we summited both! And, I got to use my Jeep for what it was made for: off-roading! It if weren't for the Jeep, we would have had 7 more miles to hike. Here are some pics:

You can see our trail from where we slid on our butts down the mountain! Very exciting.
