Hiking by harbie


We were hiking to the 14'er, Mount of the Holy Cross. It is named that because on one side there are 2 large crevices that cross and snow settles there making a large cross. It is a long hike ( 12 miles) with a large elevation gain as you approach the summit (5600 ft total, 3000 ft last 2 miles). We made it in almost 4 miles before we had to turn around due to approaching bad weather. There were 11 of us who are mostly neighbors. It was a beautiful hike. We'll have to try again next year. Thank you for viewing.
What a lovely place to be hiking. A pity you had to turn around, but sensible in the mountain terrain. By the looks of the packs, you were all well prepared for any situation.

Very interesting in many ways! Do people make this as a pilgrimage on holy days as they do here?

That looks like such a fun trail. I know pictures are deceiving - was it very steep? Great picture.
