  September 2013    Iphone 5   My iPhone capture of our hike up the Lavender Col route on Mount Sneffels. We planned this hike during late September with sunny skies, then woke up to ~8 inches of fresh snow. We were the only people on this Colorado 14er that day, and one of the highlights of our climbing adventures together.
