    One of the best hikes I have ever done. It was early May, and we started around 5 in the morning, since it was surprisingly hot for that time of the year. We camped at the Rio Grande Village Campground the previous night, and it was awful to say the least. Hot and the mosquitoes tried to eat us alive, we hurry into the tent since there was no warning at all. Inside it was just a steam room, either that or the mosquitoes. A lightning storm broke around 2 in the morning, and we had to get out of the tent and put on the rain fly, no sleep at all, but we were determined to make it to the top of Emory Peak that day. Broke camp at 5 AM, got backpacks ready, and off we go. The plan was to have some breakfast before the hike, but we had a nice healthy dinner, and were so tired of being in the tent the whole night, that we decided to skip it all together and just go for it. The views along the trail were just breathtaking, stopped numerous times to take pictures and videos, nobody on the trail. The last half mile it's steep, you can feel it, but well worth it. Before you get to the top, there's a small, very exposed rock climb to the very summit. We found some people at the bottom that just did not want to take the risk, understandably so, we thought about it ourselves. At the end we decided that that was exactly what we were there for, and went for it. It wasn't that bad at all, just keep three points in contact with the wall, ignore the drop off (easier said than done!), and you're there. Oh boy, what a treat, just sat there for about an hour taking in the view. What a treat for the soul, I felt that I got what I came for, I was at peace with myself.
