I didn't know I could fly until today. The winds were literally lifting me off the ground at times. After having my fill of Longs Peak and the Keyhole Route already (it did land me a nice new blog header pic courtesy of a recent RMNP trail condition report), I decided to take on Longs sister peak, Mount Meeker. From Chasm Lake, I headed up through the Iron Gates to Meekers northeast ridge.

Here are some assorted pics from the day:
