Made a quick trip (if you can call it that) on Saturday to go hike La Plata Peak here in Colorado after changing plans due to weather on Friday.

5th highest peak in the state at around 14,344 ft, 9.25 mile round trip from the trailhead. Started at around 525 am and got back to my truck around 1130 am.



View of part of the trail system.










The summit is somewhere up there.




Hikers just making up to the ridge.


Getting there.






Are we there yet? More of the trail, not all of the trail at this point was well defined.


View from the summit.


The dork behind the camera.


Got back to my truck around 1130 am for a bit to eat and to give my feet a break before checking out Independence Pass.


Overall, it was great morning my first 14er of the year.
