Longs Peak

Postby CrazyPooja90 » Sun Jul 31, 2005 2:06 am

Just got back from a trip to the Rockies in Colorado a few hours ago. I managed to make it to the top of Longs Peak, grueling 16 mile hike. Anyone ever do it before, or any other hard hike?

Couple of friends and I made it to the boulder field once, this was 15 years ago. We weren't in shape for it, and lacked anything resembling hiking gear so we decided not to venture further. Beautiful hike though. Looking back, we should have pressed on. Wimps.

I took the trash out today. Does that count? :-D

Not real big on hiking myself. I get bored, but I hear it's great for relaxation though. ;-D

I think the Rockies should have built their park up on that peak, just to help hit balls get a little more distance... :-D
