Greys Peak, Aug 26, 2007
Don, Marina, John Drake
Distance: Approximately 3.7 miles one way
Elevation Gain 3010 feet
A revisit of the 2001 hike I took alone, but we only managed to do
Greys as it was snowing lightly and we were not sure of the weather.
That and I was six years older and not as in good of shape. As usual,
John motored up the mountain, followed by Marina, then myself. John did
not have warm enough cloths for the top of the mountain with the
weather turning, so when I arrived well behind him, I did not spend
much time up there and we left quickly.
We left the car at 7:51 am. The road in is worse that it was 6 years
ago. High ground clearance is a must. At 7:51, the parking was already
almost full. I made the summit at 12:13pm, 4 hours and 22 minutes,
which is much slower than 2001 where at the 4 hour mark I was well on
my way to Torreys.
Here is the map with my times, not John's or Marina's:

Note the mountain goats on the left
In addition to the goat's the trail can be seen as well at the top of
