We didn’t get all the way to the top, we didn’t have the gear to get up one section so we’ll try again when we do. Overall we did about 5.5 miles and 1,000 foot elevation gain. For my fellow Coloradans or anyone who has hiked out here, we went down to Colorado Springs and did the Seven Bridges Trail. We got to all seven bridges and were headed up Kineo mountain when we had to turn back, there was a section that was just all loose gravel and gigantic rocks, so we need hiking sticks (and probably a solid 10 pounds of weight lost for each of us) to get up that section.
I ripped one of my favorite pairs of leggings too 🥴😩 Afterward we went to a brewery (Colorado Mountain Brewery for anyone interested) and ate an obscene amount of food, then came home and proceeded to PTFO for like three hours 😴
Overall, we did way better than I expected. I was a little bummed about not getting to the top, especially when we looked online and saw how close we were, but we’ll definitely try again when we have the right equipment and I have no doubt we’ll get to the top then.
Happy Memorial Day to my readers in the US! 🇺🇸
