This is Mount Garfield. She sits off of I-70 at over 6,600 ft. in altitude and welcomes west-bound visitors into the Grand Valley.
I had been wanting to hike this sucker for awhile now, so we began a trek up her steep trail at 7 pm on a Saturday night to avoid the 100°+ temps we've been having.
And this is the Lu. She is our trusty sidekick of all things adventurous.
We reached the top right at sunset-- perfect timing for some silhouettes.
This is the hubs' victorious pose.
And this is mine.
Our view of the sky on the way down-- a little nerve-racking relying on a flashlight and a headlamp for our only light.
But... It Was A Success!
P.S. A girl needs fun climbing attire...
