Gray's Peak - The 14er
The second full day we were in CO was a big day. We had been waiting for the all clear on a path to the top of Gray's Peak, 14,280 feet. Uncle Nick's buddy, Brenden, was all over the websites and weather reports to make sure we had a good day picked out... We couldn't have asked for a better one. The picture above shows Gray's Peak (left) and Torrey's Peak (right). Both eclipse 14,000 ft. You can take a trail to hit both of them but as you can see it was covered in snow.
Once we reached the trail head we took a little breather and headed up. The views on the way up were nice but no where near the views of the Mohawk Lakes hike. About halfway up we refueled and took a nice break.
