Torreys on a Thursday Night, July 21 2005

It had been just miserably hot in Denver for over a week, a new record high temperature almost daily, and the moon was full. What better reasons for climbing Torrey's peak after work? Temperature dropped quickly as we drove through light T-storms on the way to the trailhead, and there was much gnashing of teeth as we realized too late that we should be packing a tent and sleeping at the trail head. Ah well, hike was very nice, as were the temperatures. Some mountain goats werew hanging out near the top, and were not shy about posing for the camear. Short dinner on top enjoying sunset, and then a good glissade on the last bits of snow on the way out. 4 Hours round trip, and then back to the sauna after a nice break in the hills.
