First Fourteeners

I made it to the top of my first two peaks over 14,000 feet (14'ers) yesterday, Grays and Torreys. Although they're considered two of the easiest such peaks in Colorado, it was still a tough hike. But at least I've checked off a box on my "Colorado List."

I tried to hike Evans a few years ago but didn't make it to the top. I think the difference this time was Nick Harris and Brian Collins keeping me on a reasonable pace. Thanks guys!

PS. Unlike most people, I actually pick up pennies when I find them on the street. I usually get made fun of for it too. But damned if I didn't find a penny in the middle of that rock field halfway up Torrey's. What are the odds?
