12, 092 feet maximum elevation - according to the Garmin. I started about 5800 feet below at the starting line for the Pikes Peak Marathon - 10 miles on the trail to get there, 10 miles back - taking with me a little sunburn and a weary, tired body.
Training for the marathon hasn't started officially - but yesterdays run / hike goes in the bank.
I made the turnaround right near treeline - took some photos....
|The Summit - approx 3 more miles of trail, + 2000' & 16 Golden Stairs to get up there.|
|The trail was quite snow covered above Barr Camp|
|These people were blazing their own trail down from the Summit|
