High Alpine

"The first time I ever stood on top of the summit of Peak 8,I was just awestruck. You can see over a hundred miles from the top and you just stand there your first time up there for quite a while and just kind of turn yourself in a circle [to] look around and you see the Maroon Bells,Pike's Peak and 14ers in the Front Range .I've been up there a thousand time and I've never hesitated when I get to the top to take a few minutes and look around and draw it all in because it never gets old."
