Bring your oxygen tank! This was the toughest, most rewarding hike I have ever done. The views are astonishing up there. There's wine and cheese at the top!
It was beautiful. The weather was a little bit chilly but it was actually pretty perfect. There was a lot of marmots and pikas and a goat actually followed me and my grandpa and mom for a while. It was really enjoyable even though the trail itself was pretty consistently up-hill. It wasn't too steep, but it was up hill almost the entire way up. It was hard for me, but only because it was my first 14-er. All in all, it was awesome.
