Well, that was hard.
But it was the kind of hike that I had hoped for: hard, scenic, and alone. I thought I knew Colorado, but there are so much mountains! My goal was to summit at least 100 peaks during my loop. The official result: I killed it!
148 13ers plus 6 14ers and 1,600 miles in 80 days (5 zeros included). Not too bad in my opinion.
However, I did earn myself a demerit for making one consequential mistake that sent me home for a week. That's a day I'm still trying to forget. But from the brink of a season ender, I came back though.
Overall, the hike was a success! So...
