Sneffels Summit Portrait
Mount Sneffels Wilderness, Colorado, 2014
Mount Sneffels (14,150') had defeated me twice in two years before I was finally able to gain its summit on the third attempt. Two days after completing the Mount Sneffels Half Marathon, my first organized race since seventh grade, Jason Thomas and I took the standard route from high in Yankee Boy Basin to Lavender Col and up a steep, icy snowfield on a brilliant mid-August day.
