Nice pics. I'm jealous. Life is always better above 10,000 feet IMO! I don't ever remember having a bad time at high altitudes.

after you said that i had to pull out my topo and double check the elevation and Purple Peak is only 12820 not 13000, the next summit over is Mt Owen at 13000+!! After tree line it was all lose rock but at the summit there was a little patch of grass and some wildflowers? Heres a pic looking down from the summit.



Today i managed to make another high summit, this one was Crested Butte at 12162. No grass.... nothing but rock on this one!

Well Damm.... i failed to summit the Maroon Bells! I backpacked to the the climbers trail on the south ridge of the bells and set up camp for the night. I awoke at 3am and headed up the trail in the dark and somehow(stoned) lost the trail and kept climbing until daylight. When i relized and saw the trail on the other side of a impassable ridge, it was to late to climb back down and start over. I decided to keep climbing and enjoy the moment instead of gettin pissed!
