I actually don’t have a ton to say about this day out there. It felt great to get some reasonable weather with only a few wind gusts from the northwest, and I was able to efficiently climb and ski all four peaks, including Cameron, which isn’t really considered an official 14er.
This gave me a total of 28 14ers skied for 2016 and the halfway point for all the 14ers this season!
Nevertheless, I was efficient and even skied some off of Lincoln’s northeast face before climbing back up Lincoln and heading to Democrat. Photos of the day help tell the story.
The Adventure continues, thanks for reading!
