Mount Elbert Summit Attempt...
Mount Elbert is the tallest mountain in the Rocky Mountains at 14,440ft
and 2nd in the Continental Unietd States...
with a full pack, I climbed; but returned down.
I hit my turn around time, and with weather in the distance,
made some Hot Chocolate. The Vintage Optimus 88 fired right up and
burned like a jet engine, even at high altitude.
I had made it past the final false peak, nearing the actual summit;
then made my way down the beautiful "Gentle Giant"...
