Mount Elbert, June 2016
My brother and I get together once a year or so, to try and hike a state highpoint. A big part of the fun is before we even get to the trailhead... all the joint planning, preparation and anticipation! This year (2016), we made it to the top of Mount Elbert, the highest point in Colorado! At 14,433ft, Mt Elbert is the third highest state high point in the country.
