About to depart from the Barr Trail trailhead - a little past 7:30 Sat morning. .. Karen & Bill were sent ahead, as Marty parked the car.
Ophie on left with Eric behind Karen
Where the Barr Trail touches The Incline.
Our first view of Pikes Peak - WAY back there.
About half-way there. .. Karen & I would wait an hour at this junction for our pals to catch up.
It is getting closer - right??
Time for a little rock scrambling!
View to back - Cameron Cone on right
Arriving at Barr Camp (10,200') at 1:00 pm - on schedule!
The pump ceremony. .. Then Eric headed back down.
Bill's Lean-to - much cooler and gnarlier than sleeping in the bunkhouse.
[Karen, Marty & Ophie also shared a Lean-to.]
Yurt sometimes used by Neal & Teresa, the camp hosts.
Time for the fabulous spaghetti dinner.
View from Bill's splendid Lean-to.
OK - Sunday morning and time for the Power Pancakes.
Yep - it's a go!
