Trip Report

After spending the previous two weeks in various stages of fall throughout the Rockies, I was almost ready to return to work on September 29, 2016 when Wietse texted me, asking if I wanted to bag a peak? Let's see. Go back to work or bag a peak? Hmmm. That decision wasn't really a decision so much as an instinct. ;)
