I got to see the place that changed Joshua’s world and lead him to into mine. He’s lucky to have found himself in such a beautiful place. 😘 @josh_wicklund

SLV GO! Summer Countdown #11
What: Summit Mt. Blanca
Details: Blanca Peak is a 19.2 mile out and back trail with an elevation gain of 6,640 feet reaching 14,345 feet above sea level, making it the 4th highest peak in Colorado. Located at the southern tip of Colorado's Sangre de Cristo range near the town of Blanca, Blanca Peak is said to be one of the 4 sacred mountains to the Navajo peoples. We highly recommend splitting this trip into two full days. It is very rocky and windy at the top, but the views overlooking the San Luis Valley make it completely worth it. This hike is very challenging, so do your research and prepare for any possible obstacle before tackling this one.
Keep in mind: Trekking poles are helpful. Check the weather forecast and plan for afternoon rain. We recommend reviewing one of the multiple websites offering advice for summiting Blanca Peak prior to your trip. Here is a good starting point:

The other day a friend asked me if I’d always been outdoorsy and the short answer is yes.
I grew up without TV.
My brother and I were always outside, creating adventures, and exploring the undeveloped land behind our house.
Every once in awhile, we’d skip school to enjoy the sun and hike.
If you knew me in high school, you know it may have been more often than “once in awhile” (thanks Mom).
Since moving to Boulder, I’ve been slow to set up WiFi.
It’s definitely inconvenient at times and I’ll need it before school starts, but it’s been a great catalyst to get outside.
Rather than watch TV at night, I read.
Rather than have background noise, I sit with my thoughts.
It’s been a neat way to immerse myself in my new home,
and Houser has never been so well behaved.
Moody days like this in Ned are my current favorite.

*No hiking or climbing beyond this point. Serious injuries and fatalities have occurred. Play it safe — stay off the rocks.* // “Hey Val, you think I can get to the very top???”
