Last summer Glen and I made our way to the top of Mount Quandary, our first 14er, while on a vacation to Summit County, CO. The trail to Quandary Peak is fairly short at 6.5 miles, but it makes up for it by heading straight up the side of the mountain. We met up with Glen's friend Ed and his dog Merrick (a real trooper). Ed had done the trail before and knew the area a lot better than the two of us. I definitely struggled a bit with the lack of O2, having lived most of my life at around 500 feet above sea level, but it was definitely worth it and is an accomplishment I am very proud of!
