Special Edition: Rocky Mountain Grand Slam!

I finally did the Grand Slam.

The Grand Slam climbs Longs Peak and the four peaks surrounding it. The order in which we did it is Meeker (13,911'), Longs (14,255'), Pagoda (13,497'), Storm (13,326'), and Mt. Lady Washington (13,281'). It is 18 miles and 8700 feet of vertical gain. We started walking at 2:00 am and finished just after 6:00pm! The record for this hike is just over 5 hours (cazy!)
This is a shot from about ¾ of the way up Meeker just before sunrise.
