My first 14er! Breathtaking views via the southeast ridge trail with over 5000 feet of elevation gain. This by far is my favorite hike from all the hikes I've done in other states! I shed a lil tear of joy! Tequila at the summit and smashed potatoes bison ribs along with beer! I also have a YouTube Channel @ Rios Hikes & I will be posting this hike really soon on my Channel. Check it out.
