Summit of Democrat
Happy Thursday! Doug and I hiked up to the summits of 14,184 foot Mt. Democrat and 14,285 foot Mt. Lincoln on Tuesday. Here is a video view from the summit of Mt. Democrat... We started hiking at just under 12,000 feet elevation. From there we walked and snowshoed up to a saddle (a ridge between two higher points) at 13,200 feet then up to Democrat's summit, back down to the saddle, up to Lincoln's summit, back to the saddle and down to the start. We slid down two big snow fields to come down from the saddle, which capped off a really fun day!
