One weekend, friends invited us to go hiking. When we arrived, they opened a map to Mount Huron.
Caught up in the youthful enthusiasm of the young adults present, and Donna's determination to summit her first 14er, we decided to hike to tree line.
Timberline, or tree line, is the elevation where trees no longer grow. In Colorado, that is around 11,000 - 12,000 feet. That's a respectable height to climb to on steep trails and in the oxygen thin air.
We reached the boulder field that defined tree line on Mount Huron.
My husband opted to wait at tree line. I continued to the summit. Below are photos of the view from the top.
