Humboldt Peak

Humboldt Peak

The first weekend of October a group of friends met half way from Denver, CO and Los Alamos, NM to hike Humboldt Peak. The elevation was 14,070 ft in the wilderness of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range in southern Colorado. Our group of 6 traveled round trip from Rainbow trail head ascending to the peak, and our descesnd from the summit down through South Colony route. Followed by a restful moment by the south colony lake. Overall, it was a beautiful inspiring weekend in the mountains of Colorado. I knew little about what to expect when hiking a fourteener. But I gave my self to that mountain, and it embraced me. I was prepared as we all were with water, food, warms cloths, and cameras. But next time I will travel a little lighter with a day pack. It was brutal at times with the cold wind, and the steep incline. Every so often I would stop, and look back towards the valley knowing progression was being made. During the last stretch I felt I wasn’t even close, but I reached to pull my self up, and I was standing on the summit. From there on out my mind was racing with thoughts of appreciation, and the love for life. After taking so many pictures it still does not capture its true essence of that moment of experiance. That feeling of accomplishment is embeded within my soul making myself as well as my fellow friends stronger.  This peak gave me the thought to start this blog also with the influence of Ms. Burgandy Brock. Love and light to all that came on this journey.

I am. I am a small town free spirited girl that has the slightest idea of the path yet to be designed by my free will. I have an eye for what is around me. The beauty may be hidden, but if you look closely enough you can open your perspective to a wider view. I am creating this blog to share my eyes in hopes to inspire, and for the courageous mountaineers in the surrounding area of Los Alamos. This small town is located in northern New Mexico. This place has its history, and is generalized as a "scientist town", which I can agree on. When I was younger ( this goes for others as well) I didn't spend my time in nature like I do now. But as we grow we find more, and more realities that define us.
