Amber &I hiked 4ish 14'ers yesterday. 4ish because Cameron isn't exactly considered a 14'er since its saddle isn't far enough away from Lincoln. Also the summit of Bross is closed to the public. The bypass trail takes you within 200m of the summit so we'll count it. It was 34 when we started out at 6:30am , 72 when we finished at 12:00. 5:30 hrs round trip. We even ran the saddle between Lincoln & Bross, mostly to stay warm. It was windy & freezing. Other than that it never was really cold.
Pictures tell more than words so here goes.
Summit of Democrat. Amber's first real 14'er. We won't count driving to top of Pikes.
It was a bit cloudy at the start. Part way up to the saddle between Democrat & Cameron.
We could have skirted this snow on way to Democrat but what fun would that have been?

Amber said she had to do a yoga pose on the mountain. Its a Facebook thing I guess.
