Hiked up Mt. Elbert via the NE ridge. Took a long time because we got elevation sickness after coming from sea level. Also ended up getting badly sunburned, but the view at the top was worth it.

This was a great climb with perfect weather. My recommendation is that if you're hiking alone and meet an ER Doctor who has a similar pace, invite them to join your climbing party :)
