Gray’s and Torrey’s Peaks

This past Saturday I woke up shortly after midnight and embarked on an awesome adventure with some friends.  As they usually do, this adventure includes mountains.      IMG_4625

In lieu of a birthday party, the 6 of us humans and 4 dogs hiked both Gray’s and Torrey’s Peaks – both 14ers.  The initial goal was to view the sunrise from the summit of Gray’s and we just about made it to the top before the sun started peaking over the horizon.IMG_4637

I seriously can’t get over how beautiful this whole experience was.IMG_4638

We started hiking in pitch black, everyone had headlamps or flashlights and you could only see a few feet in front of you.  This was a new challenge and an added benefit was that on the way down the mountains, everything was still new and exciting because we hadn’t seen it on the way up!IMG_4655

And dudes. There were mountain goats at the top of Torrey’s.  Lisa wasn’t quite sure what to make of them.IMG_20140726_075744_280

Did you do anything adventurous this weekend?  (Kitchenering, cabling, lace-making and anything that you personally consider new/exciting/dangerous/gets your heart rate up – counts)

(extra mountain goat picture because why not?)

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen the two pictures I posted – one from each peak and you may have noticed that these pictures were posted at, oh, 630 and maybe 730 in the morning?  That’s early, let me tell you.
