This weeks hike was Climbing for Rhinos hike with folks from the Denver Zoo. This is a fund raiser for the conservation of Rhinos. It was great to hike with others and we attempted to conquer a 14er.
Quandary Peak, a 14er. (for those of you that don't know what a 14er is, it is a peak that rises at least 14,000 feet in elevation. In CO it is a big deal to hike to the top of these )
We had a beautiful day even though there was a little rain at the top and a bit of hail on the way up. It quickly blew over and the best news is there was no lightning!
One of our favorite things on Quandary Peak was seeing the Mountain Goats. We didn't get too close because they will charge you. It was really cool watching them climb the mountain. Wish we had half the climbing skills they do (see pictures of the mountain goats in the grand canyon album)
